We are excited to welcome Kristin Yao, our new Mechanical Engineer. Kristin has a BS in mechanical engineering from the University of Washington. Prior to Optimum Energy, Kristin acquired hands-on experience with HVAC systems during an internship with the Seattle commissioning company Wilson Jones Commissioning. Kristin has engaged in the commissioning of new buildings, troubleshooting of mechanical and fire safety systems, and evaluating HVAC and architectural plans. When she is not immersed in HVAC technology, Kristin is on the slopes enjoying snowboarding or, heads down and pushing the limits of her video game skills. Just to add a little life balance, Kristin also started vegetable gardening this year.
