When Sidnee Largent had the chance to work in the electrical trade, she jumped at the opportunity.

“I literally fell in love with the fast pace and puzzle-like job tasks I was given,” she says.

Born and raised in California, she attended college for a year to study radiology. After her path changed, much of her formal training was done on the job with support from her colleagues and management personnel at Diversified Utility Services.

After coming on board at Henkels & McCoy as a project coordinator, she is now starting to assist with the Quality Control department in closing out all distribution and transmission jobs to submit to San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E).

“I am learning so much on the field side of operations that I know will benefit me in my career in the industry,” she says.

As a project coordinator, she starts her day early in the morning out in the yard or in the office. Her key responsibilities are verifying timesheets with subcontractor tickets to prep for billing, receiving all new job packets from SDG&E, printing and prepping them for the field, and closing out all jobs with quality control.

“Now that I am slowly transitioning to the QC department, my responsibilities have multiplied exponentially,” she says. “I work closely with my project manager and general foreman to facilitate smooth operations.”

Her favorite and most challenging parts of her job are one and the same, she says.

“The fun and excitement of my role is when my colleagues and I collaborate together to solve critical problems in urgent situations,” she says.

She sees herself in a management position or running projects down the line.

“I want to learn as much as I possibly can to position myself to run successful projects and help my team in producing quality work,” she says.
