SolarCorps Project Management Fellow
Liz Viernes is based in San Diego as a SolarCorps Project Management Fellow with the GRID HQ Program Administration team. Growing up and going to school in Hawaiʻi, Liz received her BS in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa. During that time, she was involved in non-profit organizations such as Sariling Gawa and the Native Hawaiian Science and Engineering Mentorship Program focusing on youth development. After college, she worked all around the world in program management and leadership roles in Virginia, Korea, and Italy during her time in the U.S. Air Force. After her service, her passion for environmental sustainability that originally stemmed in high school then motivated her to move to San Diego, leading her to the GRID Alternatives team where she is excited to be part of an organization that focuses on taking care of the environment and helping people in our community.
