green|spaces welcomes new program director for green|light, Kelley Cureton. She will be responsible for helping businesses earn the green|light certification which signifies their commitment to sustainable business practices. She will begin her new role in January.  


green|light supports a business culture of sustainability in Chattanooga.

The program supports both large and small businesses that are interested in reducing the environmental impact of their policies and practices as well as saving money, attracting and retaining employees, and receiving recognition as a local green business. The program takes into account the type and size of an organization and works alongside to create a step by step sustainability plan.  


Ms. Cureton received her bachelor's degree in Tourism and Event Management from the University of Florida and her Master's degree in Global Sustainability from the University of South Florida. A native of beloved St. Petersburg, Fl., Ms. Cureton moved to Chattanooga a little over two years ago, drawn by the city’s outdoor lifestyle.


“We feel very fortunate to have Kelley on our team and leading the green|light initiative,” said Michael Walton, executive director of green|light. “Her expertise and leadership will be a great asset to all our business partners in the green|light program.”  


Her previous positions have taken her from the professional sports realm as the Community Relations Manager for the Tampa Bay Lightning, to the whiskey world as the Director of Communications for Chattanooga Whiskey.


“Commitment to sustainability is my life-long personal and professional passion,” said Ms. Cureton. “I am thrilled to join the green|spaces team!”


An adventurous traveler, she has spent ample time in Paris, lived on the beautiful island of Kaua’i and trekked to Machu Picchu, determined to visit a new country every year. When here in Chattanooga, she calls Signal Mountain home where you you’ll find her tending to her honey bees, drawing and painting, or playing music far too loud.

Unlike Republicans, some of them serve on multiple boards and some of them serve with one another on the same boards. This is outrageous. We all know that boards and ... (click for more)
