Erin Leatherbee joined VHB in 2014 to provide historic resource expertise in the preparation of environmental compliance documents. She has worked on several resiliency projects concerning historic resources, including a historic lighthouse in Lake Michigan, a historic district in Norfolk, Virginia, and units of the national park system in the Outer Banks, North Carolina. Prior to joining VHB, she was the curator of a historic house museum in Massachusetts, which gives her a unique appreciation for challenges encountered by those responsible for preserving historic structures. Her interest in preservation and sustainability was formalized when she received a master’s degree from the Boston Architectural College in Historic Preservation with coursework in Sustainable Design. Because of Erin’s time living and working in vulnerable areas near Boston, Massachusetts, Annapolis, Maryland, and now Norfolk, Virginia, sea level rise adaptation is not only a professional matter but a personal one as well.
