An interview with USMA’s 2020/2021 President

In honor of USMA’s 25th anniversary, I had the opportunity to spend some time with Julie Elliott, incoming President of USMA and Contracts Manager, Salt River Project. She shared some thoughts with me on the utilities industry today: how it has been impacted by the pandemic; how USMA is pivoting in response; and how it will continue to provide the experience USMA members have to come to expect.

Tell me a little about yourself, I spent nearly 30 years in land development and construction before joining the utility industry. I have been with Salt River Project (SRP) for the last 12 years and am currently serving as the Contracts Manager for the Generation Engineering team for Major Projects. One of the most significant things I’m working on right now is retiring and decommissioning the Navajo Generating Station to turn the land back over to the Navajo Nation. It’s been quite the project, and I’m honored to be part of the team doing this important work. Read More
