Board Member, FLIPP Inc.
Raye Elliott serves as CEO of FLIPP Inc and is a native of the economically disadvantaged small rural town of Buckingham, Virginia (an area once threatened by the Duke/Dominion Energy ACP pipeline) and a service-connected disabled Army veteran that has dedicated her life to aiding the formerly incarcerated & transitioning veterans by advocating for green jobs training for these untapped workforces that are swiftly emerging.
This advocacy extends to improving employment opportunities for the formerly incarcerated & transitioning veterans by working with both private and public sector employers who have committed to supplying a “livable wage” to these returning citizens. The work she does helps ease their transitions back into society & maintain self-sufficiency.
Raye has always envisioned an “equity in energy” type of program being a great bridge for the criminal justice involved & transitioning individuals returning back into the workforce with barriers & the unemployed individual that needs meaningful employment for an industry that has a hard time with employee retention.
