Jacinda Ballantyne holds a bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering from Clarkson University. She currently works at a power delivery consulting company, TRC. TRC provides engineering services for electric utility companies, mainly in design of substations, but Jacinda has also been involved in several projects related to interconnecting wind or solar farms to the grid. Jacinda’s professional goals are to be more involved in the renewable energy industry and to use my engineering skills to more directly support the installation of alternative energy technology.

In college, she joined the service fraternity Alpha Phi Omega, whose mission is to encourage college students to be involved in community service both on and off their campuses. As a student in the fraternity, Jacinda held multiple positions, including president and vice president of service. SheI continues to support the fraternity as an alumna by volunteering in staff roles to help active students. She also currently volunteers at Helping Hounds Dog Rescue.
