2019- 2020 Chapter Officers
As Vice President of the Richmond chapter I am responsible for selecting all of our programs and speakers for the 2019-2020 season. My goal this year is to have a good mix of both distinguished ASHRAE lecturers and some non-technical topics.  Background:  Background: I graduated from VCU in 2012 with a B.S. In Mechanical Engineering. I am very active with the alumni chapter, and previously served as president of the alumni board. I have worked for TLA Inc. as an Outside Sales Engineer since graduating.

Kathleen Mackinnon, P.E

President Elect 2019-2020

In my role as President Elect, I enjoy providing support for the Chapter and its Officers.  While that does take the form of practical involvement, attending meetings, planning future events, and decision making for our Chapter, the primary valuable service I can bring to the table this year is my comedic wit.   Background:   After graduating from UVA’s Engineering School in 2010, Kate was hired by the Dunlap & Partners team.  She received her PE in 2015 and continues to design in the commercial, healthcare, and institutional applications.  When she is not designing, she enjoys washing diapers, working in the yard, and eating peanut butter.

Tyler Berry, P.E

Chapter Treasurer 2019-2020

As Chapter Treasurer, my goal is to run chapter financial operations smoothly, but also assist the other chairs in their positions when needed.   Background:  I am a graduate of VCU’s College of Engineering and currently serve as their Alumni Board President. As an Account Executive at Johnson Controls, I try to educate and support engineers within the area with technical knowledge from prior design experience, but also knowledge of equipment and controls within our umbrella of products.
