Sandra Lester: Passive Design, Writing, Motherhood, and Music

Sep 8, 2021

Meet Sandra Leigh Lester. She’s a lot of things packed into her 5-ft frame: Smart, quirky, caring, and curious, just to name a few. She’s passionate about her work as a sustainable design strategist. What’s that, you ask? Let me answer that by asking you a question: Do you think you could live in a house devoid of central heat and air, yet be warm in the winter and cool in the summer? Her answer is a big YES! And she’s helping commercial and residential property owners pull off this kind of magic on a regular basis.

I learned so much in this conversation! Not least of which is how much she and I have in common as women, moms, entrepreneurs… I could go on, but it’d be more fun for you to click play and listen.
