Tyra joined Sierra Business Council as our Office and Operations Manager April 2017. She comes to Sierra Business Council with a strong history in office management. Born and raised in the small mountain town of Whitefish, Montana, Tyra has a deep love for small mountain towns and has loved calling Truckee her home for the past five years. In addition to her office management experience she also received several merit scholarships for her dedicated volunteer time with the Violence Free Crisis Line, helping families and children in domestic violence cases.
In Tyra’s free time she can be found painting furniture, thrift store shopping, skiing, biking with her family, enjoying the lakes and rivers and snuggling with her dog, Montucky, or sitting around a campfire with friends. She truly feels that there is nothing better than playing in the mountains and breathing in the wild air.
Who says energy efficiency isn’t sexy or inspiring?
As a matter of fact, upgrading aging and inefficient equipment not only looks good, it feels good on the financial bottom line.
This past week, I was fortunate to not only attend but be a part of the 1st Yosemite Sustainability Conference in beautiful Yosemite Valley. This three day conference was packed full of information and presentations around climate science.
