CHRISTINE WATSON MIKELL
mikellChristine Mikell has lived in Cottonwood Heights for 13 years. She is a CEO, wife, and mother to three children who attend local dual immersion public schools. Christine and her husband, Jeff choose to call Cottonwood Heights home because of its magnificent quality of life and proximity to unrivaled public lands.

Christine graduated from Vanderbilt University, where she played and was captain of its women’s soccer team. After three years of teaching in Thailand and in Mt Pleasant Utah, Christine completed an MBA from the University of Utah and decided to forge an entrepreneurial path. In 2004, she joined Wasatch Wind as a project manager, eventually taking over the role of CEO. In 2015 she founded her own company, Enyo Renewable Energy, a wind and solar company that develops utility-scale energy projects throughout the Intermountain West. During her tenure at Wasatch Wind, Christine successfully developed the first wind farm in the state of Utah with enough energy output to power the city of Spanish Fork. By 2015, Christine had developed two of Utah’s three utility-scale wind farms, and a wind project in Wyoming. All the energy generated from her Utah projects goes only to Utah customers.

Prior to her work as a wind developer, Christine was an Energy Engineer for the Department of Natural Resources. In 2002, air quality issues plaguing the Salt Lake Valley drove Christine to lead and manage the first renewable energy program for the state of Utah. She also established the first Utah Wind and Solar Conference and worked with state lawmakers to promote clean air policies through renewable energy legislation. For the past 10 years Christine has advocated for Utah to be a future leader in affordable, clean energy and was a founding board member of Utah Clean Energy.

Christine and her husband, Jeff - a project manager for W.W. Clyde a construction company - enjoy mountain biking, hiking, skiing and all-around healthy family living in their beautiful city.
