FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
EVERBLUE ENERGY HIRES ERIN MURPHY AS LEED INSTRUCTOR AND CURRICULUM DEVELOPER
Everblue Energy Inc. is pleased to announce its recent hire of Erin Murphy, who will join the Everblue team as a LEED Instructor and Curriculum Developer working remotely from Durango, CO. Within these roles, Murphy will teach classes about the LEED rating system, as well as work on the development of curriculums for Everblue’s future training programs.
“I was attracted by the company’s mission to build earth’s sustainable workforce and the commitment that Jon and Chris have to decreasing our country’s dependence on foreign oil, ” Murphy said. “I believe that teaching people how to apply sustainability principles to buildings, their lives, and even their companies is the best multiplier to truly create change.”
Murphy comes to Everblue with five years of experience in the environmental and green building field. Most recently, Murphy worked as a government contractor for Sandia National Laboratories (SNL), in the Environmental Planning Department. There, she led community outreach efforts, including presentations, training seminars, event planning and creating marketing materials. This background has helped Murphy to make an easy transition into her current position with Everblue.
“I intend to apply my green building project experience and communication skills to teaching and developing curriculum that will help Everblue’s students get jobs, change the economy and improve the environment,” she said.
In addition to her prior outreach and teaching experience, Murphy has extensive experience with LEED training in particular. Before working for SNL, Murphy served as a LEED project facilitator for Halcom Consulting. While working as a project facilitator, she had hands-on experience with the LEED-new construction certification process.
Murphy combines her recent experience in contracting and consulting with past experience in a number of other areas, specifically public relations, legislative tracking, and as a board member for the New Mexico Chapter of the US Green Building Council. Murphy has been a LEED Accredited Professional since March 2007, and she earned EB O+M Specialty in August 2010.
