President and Founder
Sativa got her start in the construction industry during a high school internship in Longview, WA where she found her passion for connecting good design with building a community around her. She went on to earn a Bachelor’s degree in interior design, continued her career in the industry and built roots by starting a family her in the PNW. The idea of building a tiny home wasn’t on her radar until her mothers medical diagnosis left her unable to afford housing and homeless. She rose to the challenge of designing and fabricating one in her own backyard but was quick to realize the lack of affordable custom options and resources to tackle red tape in the area which lead to the creation of ADU Foundation.
