Jeanette is a certified Building Biologist, having undertaken her studies at the Australian College of Environmental Studies. Jeanette is also IICRC certified in Water Restoration.
Starting in 2011 Jeanette consulted to the largest Building Biology consultancy in Australia, and now focuses on her own practice with Building Biology Sydney. As a Building Biologist Jeanette looks at the built environment, looking for environmental hazards that could potentially be implicated with chronic health issues.
Building Biology encompasses mould and moisture, chemical exposure, water quality and the electrical environment. Much of Jeanette’s work has been in the field of mould and moisture, however the overlap between exposure to mould, chemicals and electromagnetic fields must always be considered. Increasingly Jeanette is being asked to undertake indoor air quality assessments for residential and commercial buildings, analysing levels of CO2, respirable and inhalable dust particulates, volatile organic compounds, and formaldehyde.
Jeanette has extensive field experience, performing in depth assessments on six properties a week in both residential and commercial settings. Using testing equipment, laboratory analysis, and visual inspection, along with taking an extensive history of the building and its occupants, enables a Building Biologist to ascertain the potential underlying issues and provide an action plan.
A professional member of the Australasian Society of Building Biologists, Jeanette has compiled the case studies since 2016 for the Mould curriculum for the Australian College of Environmental Studies (ACES). In 2018 she joined the ACES teaching staff undertaking the practical instruction for the Mould Testing Technician Course, the first and only government accredited mould testing course in Australia.
Jeanette has been interviewed for newspaper, radio and television on the subject of mould and other indoor environmental hazards and has also conducted training with the Australasian College of Nutritional and Environmental Medicine (ACNEM), training Doctors and other Health Professionals on the subject of Mould Illness.
