International Women’s Day – Julia Lucas continues to break down barriers
This year, for International Women’s Day, we’re celebrating some of the amazing women who are turning possibilities into realities. Today, Julia Lucas shares how she’s broken the barriers of a traditionally male-dominated industry for the past 16 years.
As a Connected Home technician, Julia loves her job. We wanted to hear about why she loves being a technician, and learn how her team is one big happy family.
What does International Women’s Day mean to you?
International Women Day to me, reiterates how proud I am of every woman out there. We are capable of anything, all we have to do is try.
Tell us about your role at Rogers.
I have been a Rogers Technician for almost 16 years now. I love my job. Every call you go to is so different. I can go around the world, and still make it home by dinner with my husband!
It’s such an amazing job, and you meet amazing people, and the technician are my brothers and most of all Rogers always comes together, just like a family does.
Can you share any details around how Rogers has supported you, this last year or over the course of your career?
What I love about Rogers most of all is that they motivate me to step out of my comfort zone. They have my back when it comes to providing recognition, like when I got the CEO Award for simply doing something nice for a customer. I was even able to share that memory with my niece, and encourage her to continue always being kind to people, whether they’re you family, friends or you’ve just met them.
Who has been an inspiration in your life, and why?
The person I look up to is my mom, she’s such an amazing individual. My mom went to college when I was young and then she became a social worker, so she could help all other mothers and women.
What would you say to young girls of today?
Be the best you can be, But most of all don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone! Happy International Women’s Day ❤ to all the women in the world. To all the young girls out there, I say to take care of yourself.
Tell us a little more about yourself, and any personal interests or details you’d like to share.
I have the most amazing husband who I’ve been with for 22 years, and married for five years. I have an incredible son (25 years old) and two wonderful stepdaughters.
