How has your past career experience set you up for success with Sustineo Solar?
My career of almost two decades involved teaching ‘Communications’ and facilitating dialogue in ‘Ethics’ which seems to translate very well to my position here at Sustineo. People, diversity, education, communication, and ethics are truly a daily motivational factor for me, and I am fortunate to be able to utilize and advance those skills here at Sustineo. I also spent a few years in my life producing summits for bio-fuel education and personally care about environmental stewardship, so I feel like I get to contribute to that vision in a round about way.
