Architect (Mex), Landscape Designer, LEED GA
Founder & owner of EcoDesignSD, Vero never stops looking for challenges in her life and setting new goals. She has a strong motivation to meet deadlines, work under pressure and a solid background in commercial and residential projects. She has developed the ability to critically and analytically examine building spaces and the urban context with an ample perspective of cultures where different construction methods and systems are used to design and build. Her excitement for environmentalism is a result of a focused concern for sustainable design and bioclimatic architecture that promotes the well being of people and everything around them.
With a Bachelor in Architecture from Mexico, her studies in sustainable construction at San Diego State and an interior design background from her former job, she decided to became a Landscape Designer and eventually a Contractor, now she has more than 15 years of experience on construction and architecture design. However, she believes there is never enough experience acquired as a professional so she is always updating her knowledge to improve her skills to be able to confront the new challenges of her clients merging architecture and nature creating beautiful sustainable spaces tangible and joyful.
