For several years we have talked about forming a consulting firm called Iron Branch Consulting playing on both our last names of Ferris (iron) and Ramus (branch) which also reflects our complimentary natures. Although we certainly would enjoy collaborative projects and always provide valuable feedback to each other's work, most of our efforts are independent including providing services as follows:
Carlene Marie Ramus’ Services
|Fireplace designed by Carlene in a Santa Barbara condominium.|
Carlene provides a wide range of architectural and landscape design services. Her projects—large or small—reflect her affinity for high design and her grounding in sustainability and art. Carlene is a licensed architect in New York State (022814).
Bob Ferris’ Services

Bob is a wildlife biologist with 25 years of non-profit management and program experience. Known for his creative and impactful campaigns on behalf of wildlife, wildlands and sustainability, Bob offers a variety of consulting services designed particularly for smaller advocacy organizations needing rapid or emergency programmatic infusion, communication enhancement or organizational retooling. He also acts effectively as a confidential "sounding board" for non-profit executives and board members needing that all-important outside voice.
