Lissa has spent the past eleven years catalyzing clean energy projects throughout Minnesota. She is the Statewide Director for the Clean Energy Resource Teams (CERTs) – a partnership that works to connect individuals and their communities to the resources they need to identify and implement community clean energy projects. Her background is in geology and after an environmental consulting stint, she got her Masters in Science, Technology and Environmental Policy. While in grad school she started working with communities interested in wind projects. Community energy work merges the two things she likes best – people and science.
