Supporting solar projects nationwide
Jannel joined Altenergy in 2018 and is dedicated to spreading the word about the benefits of going solar to the Shenandoah Valley and beyond. Her passion for renewable energies and 6+ years of project management experience serve her well in her role as Director of Design. Jannel graduated from Carleton College in Minnesota in 2007 with a degree in Biology and a minor in Environment and Technology Studies.
For nearly five years she served as Project Manager on test engineering projects for a wind energy consulting firm. Her diverse experience also includes teaching English in South Korea, laboring on vegetable farms in Virginia, Mexico, and St. Louis, handcrafting truffles as a confectioner, and even a brief stint with a tech start-up. After several cross-country moves, Jannel is here to stay in Virginia. She spends her free time hiking the nearby trails, reading, gardening, and trying to sneak stray animals into the house without her boyfriend noticing.
