Division Coordinator, with EnergyLogic since August 2008
I was born in Florida and was brought up in a military family- spending most of my childhood in Michigan and Arizona. I visited Colorado when I was in High School and loved it so much that I moved out here almost immediately after graduating. I met my husband at King Soopers where we both worked trying to put ourselves through college. We now have three beautiful children- Andrew, Kayla and Emi. In the (very little) spare time that I get I enjoy playing softball, hiking or just being in the mountains, taking our two dogs for walks, and having coffee with friends.
I feel very fortunate to work with a company that is concerned with our environment and is doing what we can to help.
Team Lead/QA & LEED® Specialist, with EnergyLogic since September 2012
Growing up, I held at one time or another basically every job a teenager can hold. I worked at a coffee shop, a bakery, and a video rental store. I worked as a bike mechanic, drove a driving range ball cart, and stacked glasses Crate & Barrel. (I like this quote from Benoit Mandelbrot to illustrate my work history: “Very often when I listen to a list of my previous jobs, I wonder if I exist. The intersection of such sets is surely empty.”) I got my start in the residential building industry working for my uncle’s remodeling company over the summers in college. Swinging a hammer for hours every day – and trying to decipher framing plans – taught me many quick-but-lasting lessons on how we put homes together in this country. (Many of those lessons don’t really apply in this climate zone… But that’s another story.)
After sitting in a cubicle for 5 years helping to develop and deploy the LEED for Homes rating system for the U.S. Green Building Council, I took a giant leap a couple years ago to pursue my two true passions in life – Good food, and green homes. I began studying and in-field training to become a LEED for Homes Green Rater. At the same time, I took a job helping to run the meal operations of a local DC soup kitchen. Some days saw me waking up at 4:30 am to get breakfast started, heading out into the field to do some LEED inspections, then returning to the kitchen to greet the dinner volunteers. Needless to say – that all didn’t last very long.
While my work in the food world continues through intermittent volunteering for Farm to School programs, I’m so proud to be among this great team of raters, schedulers and trainers at EnergyLogic. It’s exciting to see day in and day out the effects our work is creating in the homebuilding industry.

Glenn was born in Casper, WY and moved to Hutchinson, KS his sophomore year of high school. He attended the University of Kansas and earned a degree in Anthropology. In searching for a field to practically apply his analytical skills toward a more sustainable future, Glenn was introduced to Southface in Atlanta, GA. During his service at Southface, Glenn worked his way up to being a certified HERS Rater, BPI Building Analyst, and answered and managed the technical services hotline, among other things. After spending three years in Atlanta, Glenn crossed paths with EnergyLogic, which provided a great opportunity to move closer to home and bring his passion for energy efficiency and sustainability to Colorado. Glenn now resides in Berthoud, where he enjoys hiking, camping, watching football and basketball and especially hanging out with his baby boy.
“One of the many perks of working with EnergyLogic is the company culture of being on the cutting edge. Having a company culture that embraces new and improved ways of doing things keeps it fresh and exciting. It is especially important that we add this value to our clients who share a common goal of putting efficiency on the forefront of our everyday lives.
