I came to Puget Sound Energy (PSE) in 2004 as an electrical engineer in our Substation Field Engineering Department. Through my years at PSE, I’ve had many great opportunities to work in different departments and gain insight into our industry from different perspectives. I worked as a maintenance planner, construction manager, Supervisor of Operations, special projects that brought Outage Management System into Operations and also a short time in our Change Management Organization. Most recently, I’m the Manager of Substation and Relay Operations, where I’m responsible for maintaining and constructing our substation and protection systems. Prior to PSE, I worked at Tacoma Power in the Transmission and Distribution Planning Department and nine years in the High Tech Industry working for Intel in Oregon and Silicon Valley. I have Bachelors in Mechanical Engineering and a Masters in Electric Engineering.
