Farallon Strategies is excited to welcome Annie Howley to the team. Annie is a Graduate Project Associate at Farallon Strategies and is passionate about preserving natural resources, encouraging sustainable practices, and supply chain management. Annie has organized numerous electric utility and multi-level government stakeholder meetings and events, written and edited regulatory filings, and developed strong industry relationships across the country. Her experience as an energy markets consultant helping to build resilient, reliable, and efficient electricity grids is now helping clients of Farallon Strategies build climate change resilient communities and coalitions, policies, governance, and stakeholder engagement. Over the past six years, Annie has worked with an international consulting firm supporting electric utilities with their distribution system planning efforts to modernize the electric grid. Prior to that Annie was a key contributor for non-profits working to transform energy policy in California.
Annie is currently pursuing a Master of Arts in International Environmental Policy with Spanish from the Middlebury Institute of International Studies in Monterey. Annie’s Master’s specialization is in Sustainability Management and her focus is the conservation of tropical rainforests, primarily in Central and South America, through both voluntary industry action and collaborative government-private sector initiatives. Most recently, Annie supported the university in developing websites focused on social science research methods and analytical tools. In her spare time, Annie volunteers with the California Academy of Sciences, Big Sur Land Trust, and the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Services.
