My purpose is to empower people to be heroes—creating a bright future for people, plants, and animals.
In the early 1990s, alarmed by the potential impacts of climate disruption, I co-founded Greenhouse Action. As a group of committed volunteers and climate scientists, we raised public awareness and advocated for wind and solar energy, efficiency, and other climate solutions. Our actions led to the City of Seattle making climate change a priority and becoming a national climate leader. We also other organizations to
After 6 years in technology sales, I decided to reduce greenhouse gases in businesses. I didn't have the 6 years of experience that energy-efficiency companies wanted, so I started a small business and was co-owner/manager for 15+ years. I learned about industrial steam systems by putting on my hardhat and steel-toed boots and going plant-to-plant with a technical sales expert.
We met with engineers and managers at industrial facilities, who were initially skeptical of our technology. Our small team persisted, gained trust and credibility, and improved efficiency and reliability in pulp and paper, lumber, oil, and fertilizer companies. We provided consulting services and custom-manufactured steam fittings. I found it rewarding to help clients bring value to their companies.
I've most enjoyed writing proactive proposals, responding to Requests for Proposals (RFPs), and writing marketing and technical content. My roles in business, sales, project management, marketing, research, and client success have given me the ability to see issues from multiple perspectives. I'm now assisting an author with a book on strategic project management, which is nearing completion.
I'm now seeking a position as a Proposal Writer or content writer in a clean energy company. If you have suggestions for me, I'd appreciate your email or LinkedIn message.
