Whitney Ditlevson

Age: 29

Family: Husband, Danny and 10 month old puppy, Khaleesi

Cooperative: Stearns Electric Association

Position: Communications and Marketing Specialist

I worked as the communications and workforce development coordinator at the St. Cloud Area Chamber of Commerce in St. Cloud, Minn. for six years prior to starting a new opportunity at Stearns Electric.

Most Rewarding Part of Your Job: My favorite part of my job so far has been our Energy Education program. I had the opportunity to visit 33 schools within our service territory this winter to educate fourth graders about energy efficiency and electrical safety.

College: St. Cloud State University; Major: Public Relations

Favorite Vacation Spot: I’ve been on several wonderful vacations, but my favorite place is actually a tie between Zakopane, Poland and Sorrento, Italy.

Favorite Road Trip Snack: Sour Cream and Onion Pringles

In My Spare Time: I enjoy walking our pup, grilling out with friends and reading.

Fun Fact: I grew up in Wisconsin and LOVE the Green Bay Packers!

Car I Drive: Chevy Equinox

One thing I hope to learn on this trip is overcoming range anxiety. Even though our car is built to provide us with worry-free charging guidance, I’m still worried we will run out of charge between charging destinations. I also look forward to seeing if and how our speed, vehicle temperature and other factors like charging electronics while driving factor into our vehicle’s battery life.
