Shirley dedicated her undergraduate education to learning about solar energy, and is excited to use her experience to help communities in need. She earned her B.S in Engineering Physics from the Colorado School of Mines. When she found GRID as a volunteer, she decided she had to work with them and landed a Solar Corps position on the Central Coast in 2012. When GRID announced it was expanding to Colorado, Shirley jumped on the chance to help bring solar power to low-income families in her home state. Shirley is now back in California and will assume a leadership position as the Operations Manager for GRID. When she's not at work, you can find Shirley skiing, rock climbing, and exploring California.
