RHEA turns traditional sustainability consulting on its head. After working professionally for nearly 3 decades, one thing is clear: doing the “right” thing isn’t always the goal.
Rebalancing the People-Planet-Profit equation cannot be achieved without Practice. This requires a daily practice of authenticity, the implementation of best practices, and the commitment to cultivating a practice of inclusive, non-violent communication.

While with the City of Ventura, I developed a program that measured and reduced the amount of waste generated on school campuses. 16 campuses received waste assessments and were followed up with recommendations and operational changes to demonstrate a 70-80% reduction in the waste going to the landfill.
Nearly half of the food produced is wasted globally, which contributes to a host of issues for our planet, our economy and our communities in need. RHEA works with cities, counties, learning institutions, for-profit businesses and nonprofit organizations to respond to new regulations like SB 1383.
In the 1990's businesses hoping to position themselves as "sustainable" or "green" often referred to the "Triple Bottom Line." This term refers to business activities that take into account social, environmental and economic capital within a sustainable development framework.
The problem is, humanity has lost touch with its ecological and even spiritual origin. In pursuit of profit, we've degraded our environment. We've become so divisive as a society too. RHEA infuses each project with a foundational practice that balances the Triple Bottom Line well beyond measures of profitability or environmental preservation. Daily practices, whether speaking about mindfulness with clients or best practices with businesses, are the key to a resilient, vibrant, healthy, equitable world.
