Leanne Kao

Project Management Intern, Green Buildings

Leanne Kao is a third-year Environmental Engineering major working to help students get involved in UC San Diego's green building projects and learn about green building design and assessment through hands-on experience. Currently, she's helping to bring students into Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum certification for the planned North Torrey Pines Living and Learning Neighborhood (NTPLLN), soon to be home to Sixth College. 

Leanne's interests in green buildings began the summer after high school and led her to join USGBC Students and work with a few other students on a LEED Master Site for UC San Diego's main campus. In her spare time, she enjoys listening to RnB and paddling with the UC San Diego Dragon Boat Team. If you’d like to get involved with NTPLLN, learn more about LEED or find out how to paddle and what good music to listen to, don't hesitate to send Leanne an email!
