    Chanceé Lundy

    Chanceé is a community conscious engineer. This Selma, Alabama native uses her passion for eradicating inequities as fuel to provide technical competence and adept communication on environmental and transportation projects. As Co-owner and Principal of Nspiregreen, she is responsible for the management of environmental projects such as stormwater, energy, environmental policy, solid waste, air quality, and sustainability planning.

    She has been recognized as one of Ebony Magazine’s 30 Leaders of the Future and one of the Top 100 Most Important Blacks in Technology by US Black Engineer. Chanceé is a former National Chairperson of the National Society of Black Engineers.

    I became a planner/ engineer because… I have always been interested in helping communities become better. I understood that from the policy perspective but wanted to provide the technical expertise to communities. Growing up, I didn’t know what an engineer was but my love of politics, math and science opened this world of innovative problem solving to me.

    What would be her dream project? My dream project is to work on a transformational sustainable project in a developing country that builds capacity at the local level and meets the need of a community.

    If I weren't a planner/ engineer… I would either practice environmental law or work as a part of a global non-governmental organization dedicated to progressive change.

  • Veronica O. Davis, PE

    Veronica O. Davis, PE

    Veronica has experience in both urban planning and civil engineering. She is a transportation guru who uses her knowledge to spark progressive social change. As Co-owner and Principal of Nspiregreen, she is also responsible for the management of the major urban planning functions such as transportation planning, policy development, master planning, sustainability analysis, and long range planning. She is a registered professional engineer in the District of Columbia, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina and Georgia.

    In July 2012, Veronica was recognized as a Champion of Change by the White House for her professional accomplishments and community advocacy, which includes co-founding Black Women Bike.

    I became a planner/ engineer because… I was influenced by my dad. He was a civil engineer and urban planner. Going to work with him meant sitting in the window watching the shipping operations at the Port Elizabeth in New Jersey or attending civil engineering conferences. Instead of dolls, my dad gave me a Lionel train set, Legos, and Tonka trucks. As much as I tried to believe I was going to Julliard to study dance, my life trajectory kept moving towards engineering and urban planning.

    What would be her dream project? My dream project would be design an urban area around prioritizing pedestrians. This would be everything from signal timing to width of the sidewalks to width of the streets.

    If I weren't a planner/ engineer… I would own a coffee shop on a beach in country that has amazing sunsets because those are my favorite things to experience.

  • Mei Fang

    Mei Fang

    Mei is an enthusiastic and creative urban planner who has worked in the planning profession - for about seven years. Her strengths are Adobe Illustrator, InDesign, Photoshop, and mapping. She has passion for urban areas, and enjoys seeing how the city thrives/develops and how the community will shape people’s lives. She received her Bachelor of Science degree in Urban planning and design in China, and her Masters degree in Community Planning at The University of Cincinnati. She loves to work with communities and make positive contributions to the public.

    I become an urban planner/designer because… I was always fascinated with the urban fabric of different cities, and curious about why they were shaped they way they are. I would try to figure out the history and culture that influenced the city as well as the residents’ habits. I think enjoying life is the best thing and the most important aspect in life, so I want to create a “Utopian Society” for people to live in. Also, good planning would bring people joy and happiness, and that’s what I want for my plan.

    What would be your dream project? My dream project would be to work on an urban design for a community to create a charming landscape and a pleasant environment, including unique character. It would be an ideal place for residents as well as business. The design not only would improve the community’s beautification but also bring opportunities for local business.

    If I weren’t an urban planner/designer… I would be a travel blogger, because traveling is one of my favorite things to do. It is a way for me to understand cities all over the world and learn about their culture/history.

  • Jimena Larson

    Jimena Larson

    Jimena is a visionary and caring urban planner and environmental engineer at Nspiregreen. After working for seven years in planning, design, and research of water infrastructure projects, Jimena went to manage reuse water and desalination research projects. Her interests for cities and sustainability, however, led her to pursue a Master’s in Urban and Regional Planning. During this time, Jimena worked as a research assistant working on projects related to sustainability, brownfield redevelopment, and reuse of vacant properties. After grad school, Jimena worked as a public art coordinator implementing public art in infrastructure projects. Jimena grew up in the bustling city of Bogota, Colombia, but has had the opportunity to live in other areas like Tampa Bay, FL, Raleigh, NC, Duluth, MN and UK. Jimena is also a LEED AP.

    I become an urban planner/designer because… I love cities and towns and the intricacies that make each one unique. I think this love sparked in part because I have lived in areas that have seen the benefits of effective comprehensive planning and design, like Tampa Bay.

    What would be your dream project? My dream project would be to envision a plan and see it become a reality. This plan will include other disciplines, like public art and public health, as well as research. This project would not be easy to manage and would take time, but no great project has been easy, right? Like La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona.

    If I weren’t an urban planner/designer… I would have a bed and breakfast and/or tea house in a small, quaint town. However, I also like animals and teaching preschoolers (I was a volunteer Kindergarten teacher in undergrad).
