isa cannWhat began as a required graduate school project, became a venue for discussion of all facets of Sustainable Development, a focus of her education in the Regional Economic & Social Development program at UMass Lowell.

Grateful for the opportunity, Isa interviews preeminent voices in the broad field of sustainability, including professors, politicians, entrepreneurs, scientists and many other knowledgeable and highly regarded individuals. With news and information from guests who at the top of their fields of expertise, we'll learn together how environmental concerns and economic development can be complementary.

On the professional front, Isa's mainstay is business development services focused on sustainable practice consultations (internal and external), and the subsequent Internet and classic marketing and communications that publicize the positive works.

Noting a gap in the English language for a word that means "sustainable economic development", Isa coined the word "sustonomy" in 2005. The multiple facets required of any economic or business effort, from material sourcing, production and waste practices to social responsibility and the implementation of clean renewable energy that strive in concert towards Sustainability are "Sustonometrics", which she also coined in 2007.
