Ivy (she/her) spent early childhood learning from her 'back-to-the-land' parents to fish, hunt and grow food in rural coastal Maine. Eventually landing in Rockland, she attended local schools as well as The Apprenticeshop to learn wooden boat building and spent a high school semester aboard a tall ship with Ocean Classroom 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 work aboard yachts during the 2000 Americans Cup races 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 hiking, boating, fishing and missing the east coast sunshine 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 in 2016 she became 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 and the rapid growth of 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.
Proud mom of two active teens, Ivy spends her free time with her family boating, hiking, biking, gardening, exploring Maine and New Hampshire and enjoying the natural world together.
