Cindy Lewis

Project Manager

Cindy Lewis is based in the Brightworks Portland office and serves clients based in the Pacific Northwest and across the country. With an undergraduate degree in civil engineering, Cindy offers project teams an expertise in sustainable land development with a focus on low-impact stormwater management.

While earning a master’s degree in Strategic Leadership towards Sustainability at Sweden’s Blekinge Institute of Technology, Cindy became a skilled practitioner of the Natural Step Framework, an organized, principle-based framework for strategic sustainable development. With this expertise, Cindy went on to serve as a sustainability specialist for the City of Beaverton. In this role, she led the development of the city’s first sustainability plan.

Since joining Brightworks, Cindy continued her work for the City of Beaverton, preparing Beaverton’s first Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Report, making Beaverton the first municipality in the United States to publish a GRI v4 report.
