Meet the Founder & President:
“Don’t Forget To Hire A Vet!”
Like many others, during the market crash of 2008/2009, my work situation drastically changed. I found myself looking for a new direction. This is where the story of BarrierEnergy begins.
As a veteran, I had access to funding for business training. Having always been drawn to the field of Green Energy, I pursued that avenue. My history at University of California, Berkley had already prepared me with a degree in Economics. As I looked closer, I discovered that there was no way to ignore the value proposition of energy efficiency.
At the time, I witnessed a rising national interest in a “Green Collar Economy”. I saw an opportunity that led me to getting certified as a HERS Rater. At first, I was subcontracted by PG&E to perform energy audits, inspections, and the like. By the end of 2009, with business training and financial backing from WEV (Women’s Economic Ventures) I started my own company as a HERS Rater, BarrierEnergy!
Interestingly, Chris was once in a house fire caused by a poorly installed water heater. Thusly, he is passionate about making sure building systems are properly installed, which keeps people safe.
You can find Jordan either in the field, or at the office. He’s passionate about caring for our clients and responding to their need quickly.
Now, he helps complete reports, audit files, specify equipment, and perform quality control. We appreciate his loyalty!
His company hosts our webite and keeps it secure. He also consults BarrierEnergy on all technlogical aspects, including third-party plugins, search engine optimization, and web-design. We would highly recommend his business to others.
Emily handles marketing, I.T., and website content. Additionally, she does secretarial work and helps manage our technician’s schedules. Teamwork is her number one value.
