Why did you get into the solar industry?
I had always been intrigued by renewable energy so after a long career in the information technology sector I decided that I would pursue a job in the solar industry. My pursuit included taking solar classes, networking with those in the renewable energy sector, and volunteering for the MN solar energy society before ultimately landing a job selling solar systems to home and building owners.
A fun fact about myself.
I love the outdoors and often you will find me hiking, camping, biking, and canoeing in my spare time.
