Originally from the state of Wisconsin, with a background in finance and marketing consulting, I decided to put my skills to use for a goal bigger than myself: clean energy for all. 

At NextWave, our entire ethos is to provide unparalleled and value-added services to clients by providing market salary expectations, helping structure incentive plans, discussing equitable and fair hiring practices and making introductions to other potential partners. I can personally attest to the fact that every consultant we have hired have proved to be highly motivated to establish a strong partnership with our clients and help them achieve their goals.

My Thoughts on Renewable Energy & Sustainability

Since Climate Change is an indisputable issue we all face, the growth and adoption of Clean Technologies are vital for our continued existence. The coolest part about this transition, is that it will not only aid our survival but also lead us to live better lives. From cleaner air that reduces health issues, to less waste that keeps our natural world beautiful, the benefits are vast and many are still unknown. 

At the heart of all these issues are the individuals who make these things happen. This is why ESG frameworks need to be implemented to help achieve the UN SDGs to help ensure ethical and fair treatment of all people involved in a company's operations. The benefits of ESG will be felt hugely within talent attraction and retention and this space will grow massively as more countries require ESG reporting and tracking.

I'm very excited to be at the heart of these areas as there are many challenges to solve and many incredible humans who I work with on a daily basis who give me great hope for the future.
