What is your favorite thing about your job?

There are so many things that I love about my job! If I had to boil it down to just one though, it's that I love making a positive impact on these beautiful islands that I call home.

How would you describe your position at EnergyLogic?

My role as a senior business development manager is to continue to expand Green Building Hawaii's role as the leading firm in the State working in the field of the sustainable built environment.

In addition to having the technical understanding, my local connections and roots in the islands play a critical role in continuing this growth.

As we continue to grow, our positive impact grows, which is why I got into this field of work in the first place. It's fantastic!
