About Mikaela Hondros-McCarthy

Mikaela Hondros-McCarthy grew up, and currently lives in, the Highlands neighborhood of Lowell. She went to the Hellenic American Academy, Saint Stanislaus School and Lowell High before going on to earn accounting degrees and MBA from UMass Amherst and UMass Boston.

Mikaela has 15 years of experience in finance and accounting, working in both the for and non-profit sectors. She has worked for the last five years at her dream job for Green Energy Consumers Alliance where she oversees the finance operations and procurement of renewable energy. She has served on the Lowell Sustainability Council for the last five years and is passionate about helping the city make progress in that area.  (Mikaela would like to make it clear her thoughts and opinions are her own and not a representation of the organizations she works at or volunteers on unless otherwise stated)

In her free time, you can find Mikaela walking her dog Sasha or biking on the Riverwalk or the Freeman Trail, trying out a new recipe or food shopping at Trader Joe’s or Market Basket, watching a documentary or reality TV (there is no in-between), or enjoying good conversation, food & drinks at one of the many great restaurants in Downtown Lowell.  Her favorite things to talk about are sustainability & energy, pop culture, excel formula hacks, existential life stuff, food, and any and all things Bravo TV.

Why Mikaela joined InsideLowell:
“I joined InsideLowell to continue both a major life struggle and a dream that began unexpectedly a few years ago during my first appearance on WCAP-AM radio: to convince Teddy Panos that climate change is real, man-made, and that humans can and must do something to curb its effects. I further committed to this challenge by becoming co-host of the Morning Show on a weekly basis, and when I wasn’t experiencing extreme frustration, I was invigorated by the respectful and thought-provoking conversations. It is my intent to continue that dialogue on InsideLowell.”
