Danielle Blake is proud to be a 4th generation Mainer. For Danielle, this translates into a deep commitment to ensuring Maine stays a clean and beautiful place to live. Working at ReVision Energy means she can walk or bike to work (which is rare in rural Maine) as part of a company that's helping to protect the environment throughout northern New England, allowing her to live into this value of protecting the quality of life in Maine. Prior to joining ReVision, Danielle worked at the Liberty Town Office as the deputy town clerk, tax collector and planning board secretary.
While her three daughters were young, Danielle and her husband Bond experimented with homesteading by growing their own food. They had chickens, pigs, a cow, a large vegetable garden and an orchard. During this time she helped start the Walker School greenhouse project at the local elementary school. They also kept horses, a lifelong passion she passed along to her daughters, one of whom now rides professionally.
Danielle had moved back to Maine with her young family after many years of living in Montana and Seattle. You can still sometimes see the subtle influence of grunge-era Seattle rock culture in her personal style.
Danielle's love of science blossomed during her years living in a gold-mining ghost town in western Montana. She spent time working on a project exploring the microbes of the Berkley Pitt, one of the nations largest Superfund Sites and graduated from Montana Tech of the University of Montana with a BS in Chemistry, special focus on natural products chemistry. She brought this love of science back to Maine by teaching physical science at Camden Hills Regional High School for two years.
Looking at the 7 cords of tree-length wood she and Bond need to cut, split and stack for winter heat, Danielle is envisioning the potential benefits of having the ReVision crew install solar and heat pump technology at their big old farmhouse. She's seen the O'Chang video !
