Melissa Shippee joins the Solidus team with a strong background in business management and she is well-versed in many technical fields. Her credentials include two bachelor’s degrees from the University of Connecticut and certification from a two year “Building Construction Technology” program that she successfully completed in 2013. This comprehensive program gave Melissa a foundational understanding of the general contracting industry and guided her through each step of the building process, from design to finishes. She used this knowledge to design and build her own energy-efficient home and has maintained an interest in green-energy solutions ever since. In addition to these pursuits, she has also been running her own small business for over 10 years. With all these experiences to draw from, we’re eager to put her diverse skills and talents to work in her new role as a Project Manager. Welcome aboard Melissa!
