About me

Industry Communications or Media
Location Saint Paul, Minnesota, United States
Introduction I hail from Saint Paul, Minnesota, home to a region full of renewable energy potential and innovation. I'm a public relations professional and blogger with a background in energy policy and communications. Maria Energia is my personal blog and opinions expressed here belong only to me. They are not necessarily shared by my employer. I’m particularly interested in the private sector’s leadership and innovations in renewable energy. I'm also a former writer at Green Options Media. I enjoy traveling, reading, downhill skiing, scuba diving, and anything related to food (growing it, hunting it, cooking it, eating it). Fun fact: I make a 2-second appearance in An Inconvenient Truth (at the 2 minute mark, I’m the girl who is riveted.)
