Passionate about Air Quality
I became interested in indoor air quality and energy savings about 10 years ago. Knowing this industry was and still is a male-dominated field, I knew I had to be prepared to compete as a woman.
I am the Chief Executive Officer of Sustainability Management Partners (SMP), an energy efficiency and indoor air quality consulting company. My areas of expertise are indoor air quality, energy efficiency, HVAC design and HVAC controls implementation for commercial and industrial customers.
My inspiration stems from wanting to help people save energy and improve their indoor air quality—from residential to commercial customers internationally. I am passionate about elevating the indoor air quality that we breathe!
Perseverance is Key
I have learned the importance of never giving up no matter what the challenge. It has taken me almost five years to build my business but it is very well worth the effort. When I am challenged, I feel much more rewarded when my goal is accomplished!
The most difficult part of my career is educating customers on our technical solutions. Over the years, we have learned to adapt our message for different customer scenarios. Sometimes the message needs to be high level and technical and sometimes the message needs to be clear and concise. Learning to adapt and deliver the right message has been a challenge for me. The most rewarding aspect of my career is making a difference in the indoor air we breathe and saving the customers energy.
Spreading the Word
One of my goals is to be on Good Morning America so I can spread the word about elevating indoor air quality. Everyone needs to know just because we think the indoor air we breathe is clean, it is not necessarily true! Another goal of mine is to continue to build SMP internationally.
Connecting through IAW
IAW has been very helpful in just my first week! After my press release was sent out, I received an email from the largest radio podcast company in the world to interview me about being a woman in an all-male industry and how we can elevate indoor air quality all over the world!
Connections, connections, connections—the more connections you have the farther your message will travel so my advice to other IAW members is to connect with other women in the organization. Also, posting information about your business and the benefits of what do you along with blogging is very important.
Remember, giving up is not an option. Believe in yourself and your dream and I promise you will get there. It may take time and patience but once you arrive YOU ARE THERE!
