Electrical Engineer in New Haven, Connecticut
My name is Silvia Valerio and I set up this about.me page as part of my MBA 650 course at Quinnipiac University. This course is about strategic public relations and reputation management.
I manage the Protection and Control Engineering department at an electric utility in CT. I enjoy my work and it has been a great experience. I particularly enjoy that I have been involved in a wide array of tasks from designing a new high voltage substation, supporting customer's consultants to connect distributed generation to the electrical grid to the role I have now.
I have a M.S. degree in Electrical Engineering (EE) and Power System Management from Worcester Polytechnic Institute and a B.S. degree in E.E. from The City College of New York.
I was born and raised in the Dominican Republic. I came to live in the Unites States when I was 19 years old and initially lived in Yonkers NY. My husband and I spend time in NY frequently with family and friends.
In my spare time I enjoy traveling and experiencing other cultures. I love to practice Bikram yoga and hiking with my husband.
