Christine Saum

The most visible example of my work since my Loeb year is a levee structure that will be built this winter on National Park Service land near the Washington Monument in Washington, DC. Over the past two years I have been responsible for coordinating efforts by a team of government agencies, Christine Saum workbook pictureengineers and landscape architects to develop a design that meets both engineering requirements and the aesthetic standards of design review and historic preservation agencies. Less visible to the public but even more complex is the Christine Saum workbook picturetransformation of the St. Elizabeths Campus in the District’s Ward 8. St. Elizabeths is a former mental hospital and National Historic Landmark with spectacular views of the National Capital. I have been directing NCPC’s review and approval process, overseeing the transformation of the federallyowned portion of the campus into a LEED-certified headquarters for 14,000 employees of the Department of Homeland Security. I am also coordinating federal government efforts to support the District of Columbia in the redevelopment of the District-owned portion of the campus for mixed-use. In July, I began a six-month detail to the President’s Council on Environmental Quality, serving as a senior program manager in the Office of the Federal Environmental Executive and supporting the work of the Domestic Policy Council.
