With an undergrad in Chemical Engineering, Venus started as a Nuclear Chem Tech at San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station. A few years later, she accepted an engineering position where she managed various water systems at Southern California Edison power plants.
The next chapter of her career involved splitting time between regulated and unregulated sides of the utility where she worked on a new startup in the water industry and simultaneously led power generation strategic initiatives. She also took upon the opportunity to lead the largest fiber infrastructure deployment project in Orange County, CA.
In her last role prior to joining Charge Net Stations, she led a Data Analytics team of statisticians and project managers evaluating Transmission and Distribution’s assets performance. She has a passion for supporting and encouraging people to live their dreams. She loves leading teams where she learns more from them. She recently completed her MBA at MIT.
She is a ‘wanna-be’ nerd as she enjoys physics, math and sharply scripted Netflix shows for fun. In her free time, she likes to be outdoors with her two daughters and husband.
