Mryia Williams

Ohio Program Associate

Mryia is a sustainability-minded individual who started with SUN in a contract role to educate on the need for policy for the solar rights of those living within a HomeOwners Association and is looking forward to expanding on that in her new role as Ohio Program Associate. She has personal experience with the Solar United Neighbors Co-Op process as she and her husband went solar on their own home with the Columbus 2020 Co-Op. Mryia also enjoys sharing her knowledge about electric vehicles and how they can partner with solar installations.

In her downtime, Mryia likes to spend time with her three cats, cheer on her favorite hockey team, and tend to her backyard garden.
