Brenda Rippeon

MTVSolar hit the jackpot when Brenda joined the team almost two years ago. We desperately needed a shop Manager, and Brenda fit the role perfectly.

Not only does she make sure the crew has coffee and fresh baked muffins in the morning and water for the job site, she also keeps inventory of the many, many pieces of hardware we use, takes deliveries, cleans the shop, and helps make sure every job has what it needs. If the crew finds they need something unexpected, Brenda will bring it to them with a smile on her face.

Brenda came to Berkeley Springs from Cumberland Maryland 15 years ago. She lives here with her husband Wade and their two dogs and six cats.  Brenda also is the Grandmother to Brandon Widdows, who is an electrical journeyman for MTV Solar. His grandmother Brenda has instilled such a great work ethic in him!  She loves her family, riding her motorcycle, and helping sick children and their families. She is continually gathering food, clothes and special little gifts to give to those in need. When she isn’t out riding, or helping others, she likes to put her feet up and watch Dennis the Menace or Blondie and Dagwood. When she was younger she was very good at jumping rope backwards, and I’m sure we will see her great-granddaughter doing that in a few years!

She would love a world where all children, the elderly and animals were safe from harm, and she absolutely does her part to make that happen.
