Bachelor of Arts in international politics from The George Washington University in 1997. The energy world lured me in while I was finishing my undergraduate degree, and I could never shake it, especially when I became involved with renewables and wind.

If you had not chosen your current profession, what profession would you choose and why?  

I’m drawn to science and the natural world, so perhaps a biologist with applied fieldwork. Some of the most interesting aspects of my job involve working with scientists.

Favorite vacation:

Every 10 years a group of friends spends a week on Vancouver Island fishing, hiking, wildlife watching, and generally goofing around. We’re due again this summer, and it would be extra special after the year we’ve all had!

When I want to relax, I … :

Pick up some knitting or work on our tiny vegetable and herb garden.

Favorite book:

“The Fifth Season,” by N.K. Jemisin (from the Broken Earth trilogy)

Favorite quotation:

“Science is magic that works” — Kurt Vonnegut
