Lindsay Barretto

I graduated from Purdue University with bachelor and master’s degrees in Civil Engineering and was recruited by ExxonMobil Development Company to join their Offshore Installation team. That opportunity allowed me to travel the world and experience offshore construction vessels which gave me the unique perspective that I have today. Because of my desire to return to the Rocky Mountain West, I left ExxonMobil to join Idaho Power Company’s Power Production Engineering and Construction team in 2010. As a Project Engineer, I worked on hydroelectric projects and regulatory compliance. I transitioned to Transmission and Distribution Engineering and Construction as a project manager leading lines and substation projects before becoming the Stations Engineering and Design Leader. In October 2020, I was promoted to my current role as Senior Manager of 500kV and Joint Projects. I am a licensed professional engineer in the state of Idaho and outside of work I enjoy mountain biking and traveling.
