Where do your passions lie in your personal life?

My sweet kiddos are my biggest passion. When I am not chasing around after them, I love to be outside, love to read and usually have some sort of creative project going on the side.

What motivates you?

I genuinely love learning new things. My favorite part of the renewable energy field is that it is incredibly complex and constantly changing and growing. I get very charged off of conversations where I’m able to contribute my expertise and then hear others talk about theirs. I love to surround myself with intelligent, creative people and am lucky to get that opportunity with our clients and my coworkers every day.

What are your proudest accomplishments?

I genuinely appreciate all of the opportunities I’ve had in my life. I have lived in other countries, been fortunate to travel by myself, and have seen and experienced so much. I learned how to work hard going to law school, and learned how to be able to depend on myself once I had kids. I truly believe everything that happens to you is valuable, as it either moves you forward or teaches you a lesson, and that how I’ve always lived my life.

What do you focus on at TerraPro?

I am a creative problem solver first and foremost. “No” does not work for me. I like “how” and “why”.  I love being able to teach others and explain why Title matters and how it impacts projects. I enjoy genuinely connecting with our clients and working together as a part of their teams to accomplish goals.

What do you like most about working for TerraPro?

I am very proud to work for a woman owned and run company. I believe we have one of the best teams in the business, and love getting to learn from every one of my colleagues. Our entire company embodies our Core Values and we use them to lead everything we do.

Her experience in the legal field provided a strong foundation to transition to her role as a Senior Compliance Manager with TerraPro Solutions. Katie is now able to utilize her legal background and expand her knowledge and expertise in renewable energy arena.

What do you focus on?
I focus on drafting, reviewing, managing, and administering real estate agreements and documents while maintaining a keen eye for accuracy. My legal experience lends to my ability to communicate and negotiate agreements effectively with various parties involved in a project, to arrive at the same goal effectively.

What sets TerraPro Solutions apart from other companies?

I really like the company culture and proud to be a part of it. There is a constant feeling of teamwork and support from office peers.

Where do your passions lie in your personal life?
The world is a wonderful and fascinating place, and I want our son (Breckyn) to experience all of its glory. Our family enjoys traveling in general but especially when it involves a tropical location with surf, or beautiful mountains with snow. At seven years old, Breckyn has already seen the Grand Canyon, snowboarded in Big Bear, surfed in Hawaii (twice), and our favorite, been to a remote surfing resort on an island in Fiji called Tavarua (twice). Breckyn embraced the culture and shared with local children possessions that he would have never parted with otherwise. He understood that little things to us such as a book or snacks made a huge difference to a small village. The smile on his face and children he befriended was priceless. I enjoy snowboarding, surfing, hiking….basically anything outdoors and especially involving the ocean. I adore our clumsy Great Dane (Pali) and spunky cat (Elvis)…. oh and everything related to Fantasy Football! No better way to start a Sunday than hearing Scott Hanson say “7 hours of commercial free football starts now!”

What motivates you?
This is an easy one…. My family.

What are your proudest accomplishments?
One of my proudest accomplishments is homeschooling my 7-year-old son and being able to continue growing in both personal and professional aspects of my life. It has been a challenging and remarkable journey.
