Jill Lanier has always had an interest in the environment, sustainability as well as the effective, efficient use of resources and materials. Recent domestic and global developments in both economic and environmental arenas have only further fueled this interest. Jill holds an undergraduate degree in Psychology from Northeastern University (Boston, MA) as well as graduate degrees in Library Science (Pratt Institute) and Management & Systems (NYU). This spring she completed a Permaculture Design Certification course which increased her awareness and understanding of holistic and regenerative approaches to site design. Jill would like to see such practices become commonplace in NYC and beyond, and feels GreenHomeNYC is well positioned to help achieve this goal.
