Kathy is honored to serve as SEI’s Executive Director, especially since she is one of the over 35,000+ alumni of SEI. She took her first PV class in 2004, which kickstarted her career in solar. With a background in environmental education, Kathy’s goal is to ensure that SEI’s Renewable Energy Training Program prepares participants with the knowledge and hands-on experiences needed to safely and successfully work with renewable energy systems and that each person feels apart of this SEI family. Kathy has a degree from West Virginia Wesleyan and enjoys gardening, hiking with her 2 big dogs (Penny and Huck), and just built a passive solar, solar-powered home with Kris Sutton.
