Director of Finance
Mara joined our San Francisco team with over 25 years of experience in finance and accounting. Drawn to MWA’s mission of providing sustainable and equitable design, her primary goal as Director of Finance is to assure that we serve our teams, clients, and vendors with the same embodiment of values.
Mara’s role at the firm is to lead strategic financial planning, operational budgeting, and financial management. She works across departments to guide teams in attaining their long-range objectives and utilizes big picture visioning to balance financial operations against competing economic opportunities. She enjoys using financial data to identify economic growth opportunities and to improve business performance with effective processes.
She is interested in future-oriented solutions that address climate change and social inequalities such as water-harvesting, reducing our carbon footprint, and creating socially engaging spaces that promote healthy communities.
During her free time, you can find her exercising, cooking, crafting, singing, or learning to play the piano.
