GMB Project Architect Lauren Wandel, AIA recently joined the Board of Directors for Salisbury Neighborhood Housing Services (SNHS), a private non-profit organization whose mission is to cultivate sustainable neighborhoods with partnerships and lending that inspire self-reliance, growth, and optimism.
Ms. Wandel says, “I was interested in becoming a part of SNHS because I have always had an interest in sustainable community development and historic homes. I also look forward to learning more about the lending and counseling side of SNHS and hope to bring new and valuable input to the table for property development.”
She recently assisted SNHS with the renovation of a historic Salisbury home, retaining the existing charm while modernizing and refreshing the home into a beautiful space for the new owners to enjoy.
Ms. Wandel joined GMB in 2017 after graduating from Penn State with a Bachelor’s degree in Architecture, as well as two minors which focus on sustainability, land use and development, and urban forestry and farming. She is certified with the National Occupational Competency Testing Institute (NOCTI) for Advanced Architectural Drafting, and she received a Governor’s Award for Highly Proficient NOCTI Exam. She is a registered Architect in the State of Maryland.
