Chair, Energy & Environment Committee

Jenna Hattersley, RPA, is a Property Manager at Harvest Properties. She is responsible for managing
the daily financial and operational performance of a 372,978 square foot, Class A commercial office park in Walnut Creek, CA. Jenna brings eight years of property management experience to her current property managerial position at Harvest. Her experience managing ten other San Francisco commercial buildings in prior roles, ranging from a thirty-two story, Class A office building to a California Historical Landmark building, has enabled Jenna to excel at maximizing operational efficiencies, implementing sustainable practices, and optimizing the tenant experience.

Jenna began her career at Shorenstein. After working at two different Shorenstein buildings, Jenna joined The Swig Company as an assistant property manager. In 2010 she joined The Swig Company’s South of Market properties and was responsible for four buildings, totaling 550,000+ sq. ft. Jenna is the chair of the BOMA SF Energy and Environment Committee which has ignited her concentration and specialization in sustainability and enabled her to focus on the introduction of sustainability initiatives into the properties she manages. Among the accomplishments she is most proud is the LEED Certification of two buildings including LEED EB- Platinum.

Jenna also recently joined the BOMA Oakland East Bay codes committee and is excited to get more involved in the BOMA Oakland East Bay network.
Jenna has remained active in the BOMA San Francisco Energy and Environmental Committee and assumed the Co-Chair position in 2013 where she facilitated audits and selected the winners of the BOMA Bay Area Earth Awards for the large building category. In 2014  Jenna led the committee as Chair and BOMA is honored to have her at the helm in 2015.

Co-Vice Chair, Energy & Environment Committee

Jessica Handy, LEED AP, is the West Coast Director for CodeGreen Solutions, Inc., a sustainability
 and energy engineering firm with over 300 million square feet in successful project completion. Jessica earned her LEED AP in December 2008 while working as a property manager for a large commercial real estate firm in New York City. There she was on the BOMA NY Board of Directors and the Co-Chair of BOMA-NY’s Green Buildings Committee. In this capacity she worked closely with the Mayor’s Office of Sustainability to help make NYC’s Greener, Greater laws as palatable as possible to property owners and managers. These laws became the model for many other jurisdiction’s energy disclosure laws across the country including the San Francisco Existing Commercial Building Energy Performance Ordinance. Ms. Handy joined CodeGreen Solutions in August 2011 and has since managed hundreds of thousands of square feet of ASHRAE Level audits, and Energy Star benchmarking projects for the ECB Ordinance and AB1103.

Jessica is vice-chairperson of the BOMA SF Energy & Environment Committee and serves on the Codes and Regulations committee, serves on the BOMA Greater Los Angeles Sustainability and Codes and Regulations committees and is a member of the BOMA California Board of Directors, and she is very honored to have been recognized as the BOMA SF Associate Member of the Year Award for 2014!

Ms. Handy earned her MS at John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York City and her BA at the University of Washington. While in Seattle, recycling was just being established for single-family homes. As the self-appointed volunteer Recycling Coordinator for the Greek system, she sold 43 living groups, approx. 3500 students, on collaborating on a recycling program. Years later her bins were still in place and the program going strong.

Ms. Handy is the President-Elect of the Kiwanis Club of Santa Monica, a service organization that contributes over $150,000 in grants and scholarships annually to families in need. Recently Jessica has started participating (competing would be too ambitious of a word here!) in ½ marathon races. She believes that worldwide good sanitation, family planning and the reduction of the use and the waste of our earth’s resources will win us the Human Race.
