How did you get started in the energy industry?
I began my journey in the energy industry as summer intern with Patriot Energy in 2015. After graduating university, the stars aligned and I was able to rejoin Patriot as a full-time member of their commodity solutions/pricing team, with the added responsibility of managing their energy efficiency program.
My role at Patriot has expanded to a position where I am brought in to work on many different types of commodity, efficiency, and solar projects. Being exposed to different tiers of the energy industry has been so fun, and I’m looking forward to a continued career in retail energy!

Attending TEPA events/Webinars is consistently something I look forward to, and the opportunity TEPA provides to meet and learn from other energy professionals has been so valuable to growing my personal network and knowledge of the industry.
