About Us


Positive Environment's evolution started January 1, 2000 after witnessing a continual need to marry the concepts of Universal and Aging-In-Place designs with Smart Building.  In other words adapting the home to you and not you to the home.

With experience from my background which consists of degrees in Commercial Art, Therapeutic Recreations and Corporate Fitness and fourteen years of experience in the clinical world of Physical Rehabilitation, Positive Environments brings an understanding of lifestyle needs into the construction and design layout. 

 I am a Certified Aging In Place Specialist (CAPS) instructor and specialize in Universal Design Concepts through the National Association of Home Builders.

Our clients are involved in, and educated on all levels of the project.  We pride ourselves on providing a personal touch and a professional presence.  Our focus is to provide smart design that will work for all home owners by creating a Positive Environment for all to live and function in at the highest degree possible.
