Ivy (she/her) spent early childhood with her 'back-to-the-land' parents fishing, hunting, and growing food in rural coastal Maine. Eventually landing in Rockland, she attended a wooden boat building school and spent a high school semester aboard a tall ship sailing from the Caribbean to Nova Scotia. Summers found Ivy working on Monhegan Island and the Windjammer fleet in Penobscot Bay. A year traveling New Zealand and working aboard yachts was followed by four years at Maine Maritime Academy where Ivy became a licensed professional mariner and met her mariner husband. After a two-year adventure in southeast Alaska she returned to the northeast with her husband and they started a family.
Solo parenting over the next 10 years with a merchant marine husband helped lead Ivy to study the wonders of Operations & Project Management and become a certified PMP. (Ivy is always excited to discuss the endless parallels between parenting and project management!) For 6 years she supported the data privacy profession at the world's leading data privacy association before finding her way to ReVision. Ivy believes the transition to clean energy is a crucial next step in human evolution and enjoys her work at ReVision developing commercial solar projects.
Ivy spends her time with her family and friends exploring Maine and New Hampshire and enjoying the natural world together.
