Background

Summary

I am the Senior Manager of External Affairs for the New York Independent System Operator (NYISO) and I am responsible for the Government Affairs, Stakeholder Services and Member Relations departments. I joined the NYISO team in 2008 and prior to my current role, I was the Manager of Government Affairs.

Before joining the NYISO, I represented Reliant Energy’s interests in regulatory proceedings before the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), NYISO and the New York State Public Service Commission. Prior to working for Reliant Energy, I managed commercial and industrial energy efficiency programs and a team of engineering firms at the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA).

I regularly interact with legislative policy makers and my goal is to position the NYISO as the authoritative source of information on New York’s bulk electric power system and to provide “Best in Class” customer service to all customers and Market Participants.
