Careers

  1. My position as one of the Transmission and Distribution department’s line technician apprentices is the perfect fit. Building and maintaining electrical line facilities and substations makes every day different and brings new challenges.

    Growing up, I loved being outdoors and getting hands-on learning, and those were the two things I really wanted in my career. I took an interest in utility work during a job shadow in high school and then found an opportunity for an internship with LES during college.

    I’ve loved LES ever since. I learned the ins and outs of being a line technician and gained invaluable experience working directly with line crews during my internship. After I graduated and LES was hiring, I jumped at the opportunity. Every day, I find LES pushes me to be a better version of myself and inspires me to take pride in the important work we do. I’m excited to see what the future holds!
