As a child growing up in the Germantown section of Philly, everyone on my block came from a family of six or more. I have seven siblings and I am the second youngest. The oldest and the youngest are twelve years apart. I have three older sisters and three older brothers. That puts me in between my two brothers. They were my best friends, everything that they did I wanted to do also. I was always the fill in for all the sports they played, so in football I learned to throw the ball and how to take a hit. There was two of them so we mostly played the games that they wanted to play. We were kids, so it didn’t really matter much to me because it was all in fun. Playing double-dutch with my sisters I was labeled Baby Doll mainly because I was much younger than my sisters and their friends.
Playing with my sisters and their friends was synonymous to playing in the Big Leagues and I made sure that I soaked up everything like a thirsty sponge. As the Baby Doll, the fun we had growing up as kids was priceless. I played hard and competitive with my sisters on one level and just as hard with my brothers on another. Today when my siblings talk about our younger years, they remind me of how my mother would tell them to take me with them. They would always talk about it in sarcastic tones, but as I reflect back to those times, all I can remember is the lessons they gifted to me. My biggest take away in regards to my sisters they showed me how to play and allowed me to take part in whatever game they were playing instead of just sitting me to the side with a quick “stay here”.
My biggest take away with my brothers was that they never told me that I couldn’t do anything because I was a girl. They just showed me how to do it.
What made me choose being an electrician? Well for starters, I didn’t choose it, it chose me. I applied and got in. The end. But my resolve for staying and succeeding in electrical industry, had been because of my upbringing with my brothers, who instilled in me the mental astute of never letting my gender be an obstacle. When times got really challenging in the industry, I used my girl power and strength to study hard to obtain my master electrician licenses. Then I started a business as a contractor. If that wasn’t enough, I went back to the books to study and obtain my electrical inspectors license and electrical plan review certification. Because that comes from all those competitive sister girls, but my main girl that I learned from, was my mother who was an educator.
When I am not working on a rehab project or making vision boards, I am hanging out with family playing board games and sharing inspirational books. While vacationing, I really enjoy horseback riding and dune buggy through the trails.
