Andrea KrausResume

MBA/MS Program 2016

I'm passionate about the evolution of the energy industry and its potential to create equitable abundance and ecological wellness within urban environments. Over the past two years, I've worked on a municipal climate resilience project with NOAA, and a capital project management improvement initiative at Pacific Gas and Electric. I joined Erb with 5 years of international work experience; first with Siemens in Germany, heading the communication and training portion of an enterprise-wide Salesforce.com roll-out, then with the Peace Corps in Panama, where I became the organization's first ever Renewable Energy & Economic Development Coordinator. I studied both International Business and Social Anthropology at the University of Texas at Austin, and grew up speaking Spanish, German, and English.
