Colleen has spent most of her career working in the energy industry operating, designing, and building power-generating facilities. While she has experience in many different aspects of the industry, process water, wastewater, and chemistry challenges have always been her primary passions. Colleen grew up in a small town in northeastern Pennsylvania, and now lives in Whitewater, Wisconsin with her partner, Mark, and three furry feline “children.” She has been active in numerous roles with the Society of Women Engineers, as well as several technical committees related to power plant water issues within the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. In her free time, Colleen is an avid scuba diver, and she has worked with several organizations that share her love for the underwater world. She also enjoys helping others learn how to scuba dive.
