The job opportunities here are amazing. I came in just out of the Navy and BWL trained me to do everything I needed to enter as a Power Plant Operator. I was willing to learn and now I’m operating the Gas Plant.

I came to the BWL because I wanted somewhere I could have a long career. Now that I’m here, it’s a great feeling when I can help customers establish payment plans to help catch up on their utility bills. I’ve had people crying and thanking me, and it makes me feel good to help and pull someone out of a tough situation.

The sky’s the limit. No one has ever told me I can’t further my profession. I’m able to take classes to develop myself further and there’s no glass ceiling. Being a woman, that’s important to me.
