Another career impacted by West Coast Green

September 25, 2009 by Ian Bryan

We received the following note frolm Terry Phelan, an Architect with Living Shelter Design. After attending West Coast Green, she got a hankering to do something new and now she's anchoring a web based radio program that speaks to her field. She recently interviewed Sara Susanka, so for those of you who can't get enough, listen to the mp3 at

A note from Terry:

I had downsized my firm, and I knew I had to find a better way to effect exponential change than designing custom homes. At West Coast Green, I kept picking up on three messages - that we carry more knowledge than we realize, that we are responsible for teaching others, and that we need to listen and be open to waht shows up. So I decided to let go of trying to figure it out - and what showed up two weeks later? An internet radio talk show on green building! Now, every week, I get to talk to the most interesting people who are doing amazing things in the field of green building and design. It's allowed me to find my voice, and I get to learn new things while spreading that knowledge out into the world.
