Julia brings 9 years of industry experience, a love for the solar community and knowledge of building scalable processes to create more robust operations to Solaris Energy’s expanding portfolio of assets. She got her first taste of building businesses in 2007, at 19, when she joined the founding team of Shoeboxed.com, which just sold in 2018 as a 100 person company. The skills she learned there helped her create processes for a young Standard Solar, Inc. to successfully leverage $4.5m in incentives for 450+ customers, to build Kenergy Solar into a $2.5m/year business, and to lead the transformation of 15 domestic markets and dozens of international markets from stagnation to profit, including Australia ($10m/yr), Scandinavia ($2.5m/yr), and Turkey ($7m/yr), for Stion Inc., a domestic panel manufacturer. In her free time, she is exploring ways to make housing more agile and adept for the climate change era. She also loves skiing, climbing, hiking and all water sports!
