Welcome to Sparks 2 sparkles.
I wanted to start this space in hopes that someone like me (in my previous life) could find inspiration and answers to any questions they had about starting a life in the trades.
I have recently had a change in career, from design life to trade life. I will be documenting this journey as I go for anyone wanting to follow along. As of recently, I have been accepted into my local union and as I sit on the “ready to work” list I’ll start with how I got to this current place. Feel free to reach out to me with any questions or advice or just to say watt up < —- see what I did there…

I enjoyed your article in Electrical Industry News Week entitled Expectation vs. Reality: My First Year as an Electrical Apprentice, its nice to see things from a female perspective in a primarily male dominated trade. I hope you can be an inspiration to other females that are interested in the trades but hesitant to pursue the opportunity. Great job, keep up the great work!

Thanks so much for this comment! I love sharing my stories in hopes that it brings more visibility for the trades. Not just for women… but anyone. Its such a great career and am so happy I made the change.
