Lisa Grow, ’87, holds a degree in electrical engineering from the University of Idaho. When she began working for the Idaho Power Company 25 years ago, she was only the second female engineer hired by the company. Now, she is the senior vice president for power supply.
“My time at the University of Idaho taught me many things. First and foremost, I received a world-class electrical engineering degree,” Grow said. “But because it was a tough program, I also learned a great deal about commitment, perseverance and courage as a result.”
Grow began her career at Idaho Power Company after graduation and has served in a variety of positions, including vice president for delivery engineering and operations, general manager of grid operations and planning, and control area operations leader.
She continues to give back to the program that helped her succeed by volunteering as a member of the University of Idaho College of Engineering advisory board.
