After graduating in 2012 with a BA in International Affairs from Lewis & Clark College, Rebecca decided to move to France to follow her passion for EU governance and French culture. Her gamble paid off after she landed a position working for BirdLife Europe, a global partnership organization headquartered in Brussels, Belgium. It was through her work with BirdLife that she fully realized her commitment to a career in renewable energy and environmental governance. After two years of living in Europe, Rebecca gambled again by moving to San Francisco and is thrilled to be starting a career with GRID. As a Minnesota native, she misses the snowy winters, but is willing to tolerate the sunny California climate and proximity to so many national parks.
