Founding + Emeritus Board Members

Our Founding and Emeritus Board Members are the bedrock of SPIRE.

They had the original vision. They laid the groundwork, created the first events, enrolled our first members, and forged the relationships upon which today's SPIRE continues to be built.

    Bio: The Pathfinder Consulting corporate focus is urban and architectural design and historic preservation. As President, Carol draws on her experience in commercial mixed-use development during the 80s, and leadership of a statewide historic preservation organization followed by inauguration of a new program for a national preservation organization in the 90's. Early into the 21st century Carol co-founded and directed the Form-Based Codes Institute. An alternative to zoning, Form-Based Codes are the implementation tool for placemaking, often used to create sustainable, walkable, mixed-use urban design. Pathfinder Consulting is active in ongoing projects in Spain and Portugal, The U.S. Virgin Islands, Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, and Illinois. Carol has been President of Pathfinder Consulting since 1999.
