Merrly Miranda (pronounced just like the song – “Row row row your boat gently down the stream, Merrly Merrly Merrly…”) is an integral part of our Operations Department here at Soligent. She was born in a small city called Bakersfield, CA on June 9, 1990. As a young teen, she relocated to San Bernardino, CA where she resided most of her adult life. In 2020, she made the move to the Central Valley where she and her wife/partner have 4 fur babies and 1 very spoiled cat.
Merrly has been working as a project manager/coordinator for the last 8 1/2 years. She has overseen projects from new construction, renovations to solar installations, and new/existing construction. During this time, she has learned so much and it has molded her into the worker she is now.
During her free time, Merrly loves to travel, spend time with family, BBQ, and attend sporting events (mainly football games- “Go Dallas Cowboys!!”) We appreciate all the positive contributions Merrly brings to Soligent and are happy to have her on our team!
