Megan Clary, a Ohio Chapter member, is a senior engineer at American Electric Power. She graduated cum laude from The Ohio State University, earning a Bachelor of Science degree in industrial and systems engineering. She expects to earn her graduate degree in August 2021.
Besides her involvement in WiNUP, Clary is a member of the STEM Committee of the AEP ADAPT Employee Resource Group.

A certified Six Sigma Green Belt industrial engineer, she has earned numerous honors including Order of the Engineer, Diageo President’s Spirit of Supply Award, and Diageo CIO Team Award.
“Over the past 15 years of my career, I’ve continually challenged myself by taking on various roles across various industries in a male-dominated field,” Clary said. “Now, I’m ready for a new challenge — one that will force me to take a step back from the daily grind to allow for self-reflection, a new way of thinking, and a more holistic outlook of big business issues.”

Erin Lehmberg is on track to receive her post graduate degree in December. Previously, she earned a Bachelor of Science degree in economics and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish from Berry College, graduating Summa Cum Laude. Inspired by her experiences studying and working in Central and South America while in school and as a graduate, Lehmberg hopes to effect positive change in the utility industry on international level. “I am passionate about international economic development, and a key part of bringing people to better economic and physical well-being is ensuring that they have reliable access to clean water, electricity and other essential utilities,” Lehmberg wrote in her fellowship application. “I hope to influence international policy in the public sector through my research to improve people’s well-being across the globe.”
Lehmberg received the Outstanding Senior in Economics Award from Berry College and participated in the Sigma Delta Pi Academic Honor Club, a Spanish honor society, and the Beta Gamma Sigma Business Academic Honor Club as an undergraduate.
