CTLR’s #HumansOfCleantech: Meet Patty Wright
Patty Wright, a Mária Telkes Fellow and the Chief of Staff at Pine Gate Renewables, was recently featured on the Cleantech Leaders Roundtable #HumansofCleantech profile series.
“My husband and I bought a bicycle hobby business in Fort Myers to get out of the rat race. Then 2009 came along and we lost it all. So we packed everything: kids, dog, goldfish, and our stuff, and drove to Asheville. I began working in a law firm again, just doing what I could to survive. I went back and got my two-year degree and learned about renewable energy, and I thought, ‘I want to be a part of this. This is going to change the world as we know it.'”
