Vera Chen is a LEED GA and a staff volunteer in the Public Programs Team of GreenHomeNYC. She is currently organizing the Spring 2011 Green Building Open House tour in Queens.
She obtained her M.S. in Mathematics in Finance at NYU, and worked in Fixed-income Research at Salomon Smith Barney. She also briefly worked in commercial real estate brokering. Before she moved to NYC, she worked as an actuarial consultant for William M. Mercer (now Mercer) in Taipei.
Building a livable and enjoyable planet for future generations became one of her most urgent and personally important tasks after the birth of her now 2-year-old son. Vera is particularly interested in green building technology and the capital markets for the green building industry.
