Angela founded AMD Architecture in 1997 with the goal of providing quality architecture that is equally responsible to her clients and the greater environment. Through professional experience and community participation, she has been dedicated to promoting all aspects of sustainable design from programming and site planning to occupancy.

Her goal, in the book and professionally, is to make green building and healthy living accessible for everyone.
