Bios: Stefani is a member of Rachel Carson EcoVillage, a cohousing community forming on Chatham University’s Eden Hall Campus in Pittsburgh. As an architect, she designs urban affordable housing, cohousing, senior cohousing, and community facilities. She teaches courses on housing, intentional communities, and sustainable neighborhood revitalization in the School of Architecture at CMU. She is a graduate of SoFA’s Sociocracy Leadership Training. Over the past ten years, she has visited more than forty communities in the US and Denmark, prepared post-occupancy evaluations, and has completed a course in cohousing development. She has been a presenter at two national Cohousing Conferences.

Brenda is a Pioneer equity member of the Rachel Carson EcoVillage (RCE). She currently serves on the RCE Membership and Outreach as well as the Community Life and Governance Planning groups. She has also enjoyed leading groups through SoFA’s video-led classes and helping to create the RCE Governance Agreement. She is looking forward to continuing to learn about this dynamic form of shared governance as the RCE community grows.
She enjoyed growing up in a close knit rural community in Northern Illinois and spending childhood summers on her grandparents ranch in Montana. She spends her free time now exploring the beautiful forested areas surrounding the Pittsburgh area and is looking forward to getting back to community living in nature with her new RCE neighbors.
