Sara Stratton is project manager of new product development at PNM.
She has worked for PNM for over 10 years and has a passion for education and electric vehicles. Her favorite quote is something she saw on Facebook, a grandmother named Darlene Hackemer Loretto commented that, “she was encouraging her granddaughters to date nerds because they might be the next Mark Zuckerberg.” Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg had the perfect response, “Even better would be to encourage them to *be* the nerd in their school so they can be the next successful inventor!” The post and reply became so popular that in one day it received over 25,000 likes and hundreds of comments. Even hashtag #BetheNerd began circulating on Twitter.
Sara has a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering and a master’s degree in business with a concentration in management of technology from the University of New Mexico. She recently received another master’s degree from New Mexico State University in electrical engineering.
