People. Planet. Employment.

In pursuit of my mission to strengthen people and planet through philanthropy, I’ve been fortunate to gain professional knowledge and skills by serving several outstanding organizations, including Stanford University, California Academy of Sciences, NatureBridge, and The Wilderness Society. In one way or another, these organizations reflect my focus on linking humans and habitats, aligning people and places, and my affirmation that everyone and everything is interconnected.

However, in my time as a nonprofit development executive, I have never served an organization that aligns with my personal mission as naturally as GRID Alternatives, which closely matches my worldview with real-time, on-the-ground opportunities to produce and promote lasting economic and environmental solutions together for direct and dual impacts. For these reasons and more, I am absolutely delighted to join GRID Alternatives as Vice President of Development!

GRID Alternatives pursues the vision of a successful transition to clean, renewable energy that includes everyone. Our mission is to make renewable energy technology and job training accessible to underserved communities.

We believe that our transition to clean energy must include everyone.

We believe that smarter energy consumption, combined with a clean and sustainable energy source, means a better future for all of us.

We believe that real-world experience helps connect people that need good jobs with an industry that needs good people.
