Darby began her solar career here at Quest Renewables in 2020, shortly after graduating from Georgia Tech with a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering and a minor in Leadership. She is the design lead for the R&D team in their quest to create a category 5 hurricane-proof ground mount system, sponsored by the DoE. Additionally, she provides design, engineering, tooling, and documentation support for Quest’s commercial canopy projects.
Prior to joining Quest, Darby embarked on a short but beneficial entrepreneurial journey with her own startup in Georgia Tech’s Startup Launch program. There, she learned the ins-and-outs of starting a small business, which has proven to be extremely valuable as she navigates the world of solar canopies with Quest.
Darby defines the “life” in “work-life balance” as an opportunity to race sailboats throughout the southeast, climb rocks, or enjoy moments with friends and family.
