Marcy Whitfield, CEM, LEED AP is currently pursuing a Master of Design Studies (MDS) in Sustainable Design at the Boston Architectural College. In addition to her studies, Marcy is a Captain in the United States Air Force Reserves and a Senior Associate at ICF International. She has more than ten years of experience as a Civil and Energy Engineer, including four years of consulting experience involving operational sustainability, demand side management, resource and energy efficiency and life-cycle analysis (LCA).
Marcy entered the Air Force in 2002 as a graduate of ROTC at Tulane University, where she earned her Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering. She spent six years on active duty as an Engineering Officer. Her 2005-2006 deployment to Iraq involved reconstruction efforts and in a large part "fueled" her motivation to switch career focus to resource and energy efficiency. She transferred to the Air Force Reserves in 2008 and began consulting as a civilian for the Department of Defense as a Resource Efficiency Manager, developing energy management strategy for individual bases, guiding them to meet their energy efficiency goals. She continues to serve as an engineering officer in the Air Force Reserves by supporting efforts at the Energy Analysis Task Force under the Secretary of the Air Force.
In her current role as a Senior Associate at ICF International, Marcy provides technical support to various utility demand side management programs throughout the US, facilitating implementation of a variety of successful energy efficiency measures in both commercial and industrial facility sectors. She also actively engages in energy efficiency outreach efforts in rural South Carolina.
