I began my career in cleantech over a decade ago at Green Mountain Energy around the time it was acquired by NRG, a Fortune 500 generation and distribution company.
Working at Green Mountain Energy showed me the close-knit nature of working at a small company, and gave me the itch to join a startup. That startup was Choose Energy where I was one of the first 12 employees.
Choose Energy was an energy marketplace backed by world-class investors including Kleiner-Perkins. As an early employee, my role evolved with the company's growth.
I started in business development and worked in product marketing before settling into product management where I eventually became VP of Product for the company.
Choose Energy was acquired in 2017 by Red Ventures in a successful outcome where I was fortunate to work on the team that spearheaded the acquisition.
Afterward, I launched my investment career by co-founding Intelis Capital before moving to Energize in 2021 to lead the growth equity platform.
