Career Highlights: After completing my education at the University of Vermont, I had the pleasure of spending seven years with NRG Systems in Hinesburg, VT. My biggest career highlights happened there. I was able to design and create leading edge products that made a difference not only locally, but also worldwide. By far, the most rewarding feeling is knowing that what started as just an idea turned into a product which has a huge impact on people world wide. Designing and manufacturing products for the renewable energy industry has been the biggest career highlight so far.
Community Involvement: Education and manufacturing need to coexist as one to have a thriving community. Our mission is to help design and create products, while providing hands-on education to help create a work force for the future growing businesses.
