Shawn has twenty eight years of experience in both public and private sector engineering, including land development, design and construction project management, assessment districts, energy efficiency and green building. She began working on energy issues in the late 1990’s with TEC and the utilities on some of the very first on-bill financing projects. Just prior to electricity deregulation she was part of a group of local governments advocating at the state level for local government administration of energy efficiency funding. More recently, she developed the City of Irvine’s Energy Plan and worked with the utilities on ways to share more and better data in a timely fashion. Shawn has a B.S. in Civil Engineering from Cal Poly Pomona, a Professional Engineer’s license in CA and is a LEED accredited professional for Operations and Maintenance.
