I finally get to interview my Favorite Electrician
I started my Electrical Inside Wireman apprenticeship in 1976. I completed to Journey level in 1980. I have worked in all aspects of the electrical field, residential, commercial and industrial and at many levels; apprentice, journeyman, steward, foreman and general foreman. I have taught part time in the apprenticeship program since 1980 and obtained my California Teachers Credential in 1981. I have worked as a business agent and dispatcher for IBEW Local 11 under two different Business Managers. In 1996 I transitioned full time to the Electrical Training Institute as Senior Instructor and in 2006 became the Outreach Director. In 2009 I was appointed and then elected, and re-elected in 2012, by the membership as Vice President of IBEW Local 11. I served six months as the Interim President.
I am active and involved with my union; I have participated in community outreach even before I started my apprenticeship in 1976. Since 1980 I have been an active member on the Long Beach Private Industry Council, School to Career Organization, the Youth Opportunities Organization and other local groups. I was co-founder of Electric Women in 1984 and Blue Collar Women in 2006; active tradeswomen support groups. I currently sit on a number of community, education and faith based advisory committees and serve as a Board member for the Foothill WIB, the Pacific Gateway WIB, the South Bay WIB, the ACE Mentoring program, the United Jobs Community Coalition and the PV Jobs Foundation.
