What do you like best about your job?
I enjoy helping clients and colleagues solve problems. A lot of the issues that arise are like puzzles, so I enjoy digging into data or bills and putting the pieces together.
Customer engagement and interaction is a significant part of your job and that of your pricing team. What's unique about the CES approach? What drives your and your team's success in this area?
I feel we really go the extra mile for our clients. Our services do not stop once the contract is signed. If any questions or complications pop up along the way, we are here to help. We always try to close the loop and ensure all loose ends are tied up.
What led you to CES and to working in this field?
I grew up in central Pennsylvania during the natural gas shale boom, so energy always interested me. Those interests expanded into climate change and renewable energy, which led me to an energy-focused degree. After I graduated, CES was the first company that gave me a shot in the industry, and I jumped at the opportunity. On top of learning the ins and outs of energy, my role at CES has allowed me to collaborate on renewable energy-related projects helping to curb climate change.
What are some of your hobbies and interests?
I’m an avid Penn State and Philadelphia Eagles fan. I also enjoy watching movies and television shows, playing video games, hiking, golfing, and trying out all of the great food and craft beers Portland has to offer.
