Being a woman in the construction industry hasn't been an issue for Stacie Herrera. She worked for Watson Electrical Construction Co. LLC for over 16 years and is in the middle of a great career. She is currently a production manager for the company’s Multi-Family Division.
Herrera started her career as a Watson Electrical apprentice. It was a smart move, because she gained the skills needed in the industry and built a solid foundation for her career.
In the role of production manager, Herrera is responsible for ensuring that Watson Electrical supervisors are following the proper processes and procedures. She also monitors the labor productivity on all multi-family projects.
In addition to those duties, Herrera is an instructor in the Watson Electrical Apprenticeship program, teaching the next group of electrical construction employees.
Herrera said of the apprentice program, “It has allowed me to have personal growth as well as growth within Watson. It truly is the base of my success.”
Herrera hopes to continue to grow in her career at Watson Electrical. In the future, she would like to take on the role of a regional operations manager. With her hard work, determination and expertise, she has a strong foundation for achieving her goal.
