Jamie, aka @steelcitysparkette, is a fifth-year, IBEW Local #5 apprentice electrician based in Pittsburgh. After initially pursuing a degree in nursing, Jamie discovered her heart was not in it, and she ended up failing out of nursing school. Once she was introduced to the trades world, she jumped right into learning everything she could. Now, Jamie is on her way to becoming a journeyman, and she shares that loves what she does, especially because there’s never a dull moment on the job. She has also made it her personal mission to get more women involved in the trades, all thanks to the woman who encouraged her to start her career as an electrician.
