How did you get started in the solar industry? What attracted you to it?

I heard about my current position through a good friend of mine. I have been attracted to renewable energy since I studied a course on environmental science during college. It was a great opportunity that opened my eyes to the world of renewable energy, recycling, and living green. Since then, my interest in renewable energy grew – and working at RBI Solar seemed like the perfect way to make a difference for the environment and to continue my education and exploration of renewable energy.

How long have you been in the solar industry?

I have been at RBI Solar for over a year now.

What do you do at RBI Solar?

I am part of the Administrative Support team, and together we process orders, submit billing, support the sales effort, update project reports, and interact with our customers.

What has been your proudest accomplishment at RBI Solar so far?

I feel like I am part of a great team that is focused on working together in a collective effort to support all of the projects we take on. So far I am proud of the ways I have provided a more organized structure for gathering and recording information for my team. I enjoy communicating with our customers to create a mutual understanding of what is needed on both ends. I have also created a little guide to assist in training any potential new hires, which has already come in handy!

What advice would you give to women starting out in the solar industry or looking to get into it?

Always be open to learning something new. You never know what you are capable of until you put yourself out there. It is important to always educate yourself because there are going to be numerous opportunities to use your talents and gifts. I have sometimes surprised myself by acquiring skills that were beyond my field of study.

Anything else you’d like to add?

I am very grateful to be working with a group of people who are passionate about making a positive impact on the world. Every person has something valuable to offer, and from within this environment comes the success of our business to provide a myriad of authentic ideas and solutions in an industry that continues to grow exponentially. Working at RBI Solar has provided a wonderful opportunity for me to grow and connect with an amazing group of professionals.
