10 Questions for Director of Marketing, Rebecca Morris.
We Asked. She Answered. Now You Know.
1. Why did you join the Pisgah Energy team?
I decided to join Pisgah Energy because it gave me an incredible opportunity to use my creative skills to help build a company whose mission I really believe in. It’s critical to our health and the health of the planet that we make the switch to renewable energy and I’m excited to be a small part of that transition.
Icing on the cake? I get to work with my husband everyday. I honestly love being able to share this passion with him.
2. Have you worked in renewable energy before?
Yes! Before Pisgah Energy, I worked with a couple of other solar companies to implement targeted B2B marketing campaigns. Lead Generation is my middle name.
3. What most excites you most about the future of renewable energy?
I can’t wait to see how the growing use of energy storage changes the game for solar and other renewables. Because storage plays a critical role in reaching 100% carbon free energy, we can expect to see a lot of exciting advances in battery technology. Watch this space.
4. Favorite pastime?
I love backpacking with my husband and our pupster, Ruby. It may sound pretty cliché, but being out in the woods always heals what ails me.
5. Do you have a personal mantra or quote?
“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive and do that. What the world needs are people who have come alive.” Harold Thurman
6. Favorite Movie or TV Show?
There’s so much good stuff out there! That said, I’m kind of obsessed with ‘The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’ on Amazon. It’s just so incredibly funny and moving — and the costumes! Wow.
7. Next Big Adventure?
It’s not planned at all, but I would love to spend a month or two in New Zealand. It just seems like an incredibly magical place. Hobbits and Golems and elves – oh my!
8. What’s the weirdest job you’ve ever had?
Well, I’m an actor so I’ve had a lot of ‘weird’ jobs. Picking one is tough, but I once played a dagger wielding, evil elf in an indie sci-fi/fantasy movie. It was never finished, but I still have the daggers. I don’t know what happened to the pointy ears.
9. Do you remember the first movie you ever saw in the theatre?
The first movie I remember seeing was The Fox & The Hound at a drive-in theatre in San Antonio TX. I was maybe 5 years old.
10. Off the top of your head, what are three words that describe you?
I feel like I need to climb on board the alliteration train so – Curious Kooky Creative.
