Meet Our Team

We are a team of doers, movers, rebuilders, and makers. We find inspiration and joy in the value, possibilities, and stories of all the people and salvaged materials and we encounter.

The ReBuilding Center crew values teamwork, respect, creativity, innovation, learning, and sharing. Whether teaching classes, salvaging materials, helping guests in the store, or working at a computer, we are known for being a hard-working team that has just as much fun.

Our community of staff and board members, and the broader community we serve and call home, makes us who we are and powers all we do. If you haven’t met us yet, please come say hello or drop us a line! We’d love to meet you, learn how we can serve you, and welcome you to the RBC community.

Do you love reuse and building community as much as we do? Join our Team!
