Interview: Tisha Schuller Doesn’t Shy Away From Debate


The next time I’m in an involved discussion or debate on energy issues, I want Tisha Schuller on my team. Why? She is enlightened, understands the business from every angle and doesn’t mince words. In fact, for the principal and founder in 2015 of Adamantine Energy in Boulder, Colo., words are her business.

Some background: Schuller is a 1993 graduate of Stanford University with a bachelor’s of science degree in earth systems with an emphasis in geology. She is strategic advisor for Stanford’s Natural Gas Initiative and directed a symposium focused on reducing poverty in the developing world through natural gas. Schuller wrote a book titled “Accidentally Adamant” in 2017.

She was also president and CEO of the Colorado Oil & Gas Association (COGA) from 2010 to 2015, during which time, she encountered two life-altering crises: evacuating her family from the Fourmile Canyon fire near Boulder in 2010 and a second evacuation from Colorado flooding in September 2013. Before joining COGA she was a principal and vice president with Tetra Tech, an environmental consulting and engineering firm, for 15 years. A public speaker, she also serves on the National Petroleum Council. She has a weekly email series called “Both of These Things are True.”
