My road in life took a while to figure out.
Learning how to read at age 5. If you can't read, boy is life going to be rough.
Graduated College (Undergraduate & Graduate)
Could not find a job after grad school and spent a few months homeless
Served as an AmeriCorps volunteer for a year.
Landed my first White-Collar job at Puget Sound Energy
Worked really hard for 10 years doing research, working long hours.

Day to Day

In the past, I managed and conducted multi-million dollar research projects in energy, ranging from evaluating the impact of behavior messaging on energy conservation to designing and managing studies on optimal air sealing strategies in multifamily buildings. I also ran the cost-effectiveness analysis for a very large energy conservation program in WA State. Currently, I've completed some market segmentation analyses, I work on customer facing surveys, and I build analytical tools.
