Born and raised in and around Portland, Oregon. I currently work in Vancouver, WA at Clark Public Utilities (CPU), located right across the border (Columbia River) from Oregon. I started my career in telecommunications and worked in Customer Accounts, Program Management and Management. For 4 years I worked at PacifiCorp where I got my feet wet in the utility industry. Nine ½ years ago I started at CPU as a Key Accounts Manager and I became a manager with direct reports 3 ½ years ago. I currently manage 7 direct reports who work with key accounts, implement energy efficiency projects, deliver customer service and provide energy efficiency program assistance. I am very detailed-oriented and driven by results. I live with my husband and 2 kids in West Linn, Oregon. I enjoy my job and this ever-changing industry where I get to learn something new every day.
