The women of Viva Electric truly do brighten the lives of those around them. Every day, and especially today on International Women’s Day, we want to highlight the women behind the scenes of Charlotte’s top-rated electrical company.
Maegan Giler is one of Viva Electric’s co-founders. She and Jimmy were high school sweethearts and are now proud parents and stellar business partners. It was in 2017 that Maegan and Jimmy decided to go out on their own and start Charlotte’s newest electrical company.
“We are one big family. We care greatly about our employees, about our clientele, and we want to just light up everyone’s life. We want to do what we can to make everyone’s lives better,” Maegan said.
With Maegan’s leadership at the helm of Viva Electric, it’s no wonder that our teams provide outstanding customer service and are lighting up the lives of those in the Charlotte/Mecklenburg area.
But Maegan is not the only woman on the leadership team at Viva, Michelle Cooke is Viva Electric’s Director of Operations.
Michelle echoes Maegan’s goals of wanting to make Viva a place where employees and customers are made to feel like family. Her willingness to work hard, to pursue greater achievements and to shine a light wherever she goes is the spark that puts Viva ahead.
But where would we be without the voice of Viva? Jayna Kirkpatrick is Viva Electric’s First Impressions Ambassador and Lead Dispatch. “I try to give them exceptional service by shedding ‘light’ on solving their electrical problems,” she said. “It’s not always pleasant having something break in your home so I’m glad I can be a friendly voice to answer the phone and help our clients.”
Morgan Smith is also one of Viva’s First Impression Ambassadors and helps to light up the lives of those who call looking for an electrical solution. As first impressions ambassadors, Jayna and Morgan help to figure out how Viva Electric can help and then they get the right people out to the job.
Maegan, Michelle, Morgan and Jayna are paving the way and shining the light for future women to take leadership roles, enter into the world of electricians and succeed in whatever they put their minds too.
Today, on International Women’s Day, we are proud to celebrate the women of Viva. Thank you, ladies, for all that you do for Viva Electric, for lighting up the lives of everyone you meet and for being you.
