In her consulting practice Ms. McCullough has developed strategies toward economic and environmental sustainability at a range of scales, from individual properties to entire regions; and for a range of clients, including cities, institutions, developers, and neighborhood groups. She has also participated on Sustainable Design Assistance Teams around the country for the American Institute of Architects. Recent projects have included a redevelopment plan for the C.S. Mott Foundation for their properties in downtown Flint, Michigan, as a means to help catalyze a regional economic strategy; regional strategies for more sustainable development in Tucson; a plan for the redevelopment of an industrial corridor in Oklahoma City as a mixed-use district focused on eco-industries; and an economic development strategy for Forest City, North Carolina, that capitalizes on the town's traditional urbanism and heritage. Ms. McCullough is currently at work on a book on how future trends in transportation, from walkability to the autonomous vehicle, can support a more sustainable and livable urban environment.
