Lisa then began a journey in search of answers. After much research and a dozen doctor visits, she came to the conclusion that her house and products within the home were making her sick! It was through her research that Lisa decided to become a BBEI/Building Biologist (a study derived from Germany which encompasses how buildings impact life and the living environment). With her B.A. from Arizona State University already under her belt, she then decided to incorporate her two passions in life–interior design and health. Together with Ron who earned his B.A. from George Mason University, they chose to seek “greener pastures.” In addition, Ron is also a BBEC/Building Biologist and he and Lisa are also Certified Green Building Professionals.
