“I get a real charge from making sure my clients are happy,” says Val. “I relish the challenge of digging deep to find solutions that will benefit my clients. Not only do I need to learn as much as I can about my clients’ organizations and utility needs but also spend time exploring the nuances of each state’s tariffs and rate structures. Sometimes it’s like searching for a needle in a haystack, but it feels great when I find a detail that is going to save my client money!”
