About us

“Ineda’s solid planning base and interpersonal skills provided the District confidence in decision-making on even the most complicated and controversial projects.  Ineda works with everyone involved in the process to ensure smooth operations and overall program success. She is a quick study, thinks well on her feet and is able to respond to complex questions in a competent and professional manner. Her oral reports before our Board of Trustees were concise and well founded. Her written reports were comprehensive, factually accurate and clearly presented….Ineda is a team player with solid leadership capabilities.  If given the opportunity I would certainly hire Ineda again, and I strongly recommend that you consider securing her services for your program.”

“Ineda was a very conscientious Planner concerned with the needs of the community at-large.   She demonstrated excellent public relations skills and was extremely resourceful.  Her architectural design background was a benefit to the entire department in the review of proposed development projects.  Ineda laid the foundation for and drafted the County’s first comprehensive Design Guidelines”.
