Meet Dr Vicky Dunn, our Energy Manager

02/15/2019

Name: Dr Vicky Dunn

What do you do?  Energy Manager.  Coordinating upgrades to public buildings to save money, energy and carbon dioxide emissions.  This means balancing the £ notes and the tonnes of carbon so the project achieves all the savings it should.

My favourite energy saving tip is put a jumper on and turn the heating down.

I love to put my energy into my job, my family, my allotment, home brewing, and community energy projects.

I would hate to waste my energy on working just to gain more material possessions.

The first thing I do when I start work each day is have a cup of tea while I consider my to-do list.

Which celebrity would you most like to meet and why?  I loathe the concept of celebrities because they rarely model the behaviours we need in these times.  But I suppose if I had to pick one I’d like to discuss Brexit with Bruce Dickinson (musician, pilot, brewer, sportsperson, writer, and industrialist).

The last event you bought tickets for?  To watch my friend’s daughter sing in Annie at the Louth Playgoers.

What do you wish somebody would invent?  Something to make ten year olds get bored of screen time after an hour.

What would you tell your ten-year-old self?  When you get to big school, boys will avoid you.  This is, not because you’re unattractive, it’s because you scare them.
