Meet our new Executive Director, Staci Richardson!

Please join us in welcoming Staci Richardson to GRID Alternatives North Valley as our new Executive Director. 
In her role, Staci will be leading and supporting the NV team to serve our communities, delivering GRID’s mission as well as collaborating with other regions and Headquarters (HQ) to steward the organization.
Staci comes to GRID from Sierra College, a community college in Placer County outside of Sacramento, where she oversaw their workforce development initiatives following a stint with JobCorps Sacramento. Staci grew up in New Jersey and has spent the past 20 years in the Sacramento region. She has extensive expertise in workforce development, leadership, and contract management, as well as serving Minority Business Enterprises (MBEs) in her former positions at CalTrans. Staci was drawn to GRID because of the amazing work being done along with GRID’s powerful mission statement.  She is excited to join GRID's efforts to create rapid, innovative changes to address our global climate crisis and bring equitable energy and employment access to our North Valley communities.
Her parents created a community contest to name her and her twin brother!
