During the planning and execution of the National Energy Storage Summit, one of the major announcements planned for the event was the launch of the LBNL/SLAC national virtual field trip seminar series for energy storage. Kiran volunteered to support this effort and started working months before the Summit to bring the idea to fruition on time and better than imagined. Her wide-ranging experience, attention to detail, and prolific writing efforts allowed us to develop a great plan for the event so that we could announce this two-lab effort. Kiran's efforts also meant that we had a strong story to tell with the virtual visit to the International Space Station (the first "tour" in the series) - a major draw for Summit attendance. This was one of the most complicated initiatives of the Summit, with several website pages, many internal and external documents, and several speeches accomplished thanks to Kiran's efforts.
