Since joining AEE at the start of 2015, my professional career has taken off. I passed the CEM exam, and became a CEM in April of 2015. Last November, I was promoted to Energy Engineer for Region 7 of GSA. Since last year, I have attended both the GLOBALCON and WEEC conferences. From these conferences, I've been able to network with other professionals, gain exposure to the latest energy-saving technologies, and learn from best practices. All of these experiences have enhanced my professional growth in the energy sector, and there is no doubt that my career will continue to grow, evolve, and thrive in that energy realm. I really believe that I have found my niche. This is where I belong.
