I met Rachel after working at E Source for a only couple of weeks when she threw an impromptu pizza party and announced that she was pregnant with her first child. (For the record, I’m not sure I’ve seen a cuter baby boy than her son, Jacob.) Since then, Rachel has moved from the Member Services department, where she was running the E Source Efficiency Services, to the Research department, where she leads a team focusing on demand-side management (DSM). She has more than 11 years at the company under her belt, and E Source could not be luckier to have such a smart and dedicated gal on our team.
Hometown: Brookfield, Connecticut
What you do at E Source: Currently, I’m a research director and lead a team of DSM researchers. We respond to thousands of our members’ on-demand research requests per year; write dozens of articles and reports for our website; and conduct the web conferences and E Source meeting sessions about energy efficiency, demand response, and renewable energy programs.
Why you like working at E Source: One: I’m challenged every day and I’m constantly learning new things. Two: My colleagues are such a smart, intellectually curious, and fun group of people. I’m honored to be part of the E Source family. Three: I feel like I’m doing something good for the world, whether it’s just helping to make our clients’ jobs easier or indirectly protecting the environment.
Something most people don’t know about you: I can actually sit still sometimes! Usually it’s only when I’m on vacation at the beach reading a book. Most of the rest of the time I’m busy doing something—work, playing outside, cooking, socializing, or running around somewhere.
