I started out as a small business owner in Brazil. After a few years, I needed more. I desired more. I wanted something different. Both my mother and brother were taking vocational courses at a Technical School in New York, so I returned to America and trained as an electrician. After interviewing at a few places, I joined Horsepower because I felt they would offer me something bigger than just a job; I saw they would provide me with a lifelong career.
As a woman in the field, I am treated by my teammates with respect and admiration. Within a year of joining horsepower, I am already working my way up the chain of command and am currently a leader in the service division, tasked with the daily responsibility of running my own electrical crew. To me, Horsepower is special because the company really cares about us and always goes the extra mile to create opportunities for growth. Most places view people as employees. At Horsepower, they view us as family. Family is what brought me here…and family is what keeps me here.
