I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree from the United States International University, Cal Western campus. My curriculum consisted of business, accounting and psychology. During both high school and college, I apprenticed with my father in his third-generation construction business.
I began working with The Wyer Corporation, a local firm specializing in Real Estate, Development, and Construction. Through design and construction of new facilities, my project management position allowed me to become familiar with the many governmental agencies that control development within the coastal zones in San Diego.
Our residential development was highlighted by numerous architecturally designed and well-planned condominiums, new homes, and remodeling projects. The development of these projects required involvement with the local community planning groups and problem solving relating to each individual plan. Nationally recognized periodicals and local publications that have featured our projects include:
- Architectural Digest
- Better Homes and Garden
- La Jolla Light
- San Diego Home and Garden
- San Diego Magazine
Throughout the years, I was instrumental in developing and constructing shoreline protective structures (seawalls). Major issues inherent to the bluff line include natural erosion (above and below the bluff), property setbacks, and beach access. Seawalls are environmentally sensitive during the construction process and as they age along with the endangered coastline. Local engineering firms, including Scripps Institution of Oceanography and the Army Corps of Engineers, provided many of the coastline studies and recommendations to minimize the impact to local beaches regarding the addition of the seawall structures.
