Nicole Bavard

I joined SDG&E in 2009 as an engineering intern in the Substation Construction and Maintenance Department. In 2010, I joined full time as an associate engineer completing three 6-month rotations in the following groups: Electric Distribution Engineering, Transmission Planning and Electric Regional Operations. After 18 months I was placed in our Substation and Transmission Maintenance and Operations group, which I did for the next 4 years. In 2014, I became a certified Start Engineer and in 2016, I became a Team Lead within the same group. In 2017 I received the opportunity to join Electric Regional Operations as the Operations and Engineering Manager, where I managed a team of Electric Troubleshooters, Engineers and a Compliance Operations Team. I was recently promoted to Construction & Operations Manger, Managing our North Coast District

I received my BS in Electrical Engineering from San Diego State University in 2010 and my professional engineering (P.E.) license in 2013.
