Ambassador Spotlight of the Month

Community Ambassador of the Month

Elizabeth Paulson, Manager of Customer Assistance Programs, recently celebrated her fifth anniversary with JEA. She has been a JEA Ambassador since the program’s inception in 2014. Interacting with and making a difference in the lives of members of the community is the driving force for Elizabeth’s enthusiasm over the program.

“I believe the JEA Ambassador, Volunteer and Customer Assistance Programs act as a 3-legged stool – each part supports the other and makes JEA’s Community Impact much more valuable,” she says.  One of her favorite Ambassador activities has been working with Junior Achievement. Through this program JEA Ambassadors have the opportunity to teach girls about money, careers and how to start a business. Elizabeth says, “I’ve found that when I teach, I learn.”

As far as encouraging others to get involved in the Ambassador program, Elizabeth feels there’s no better time in JEA’s history to give back to our community. “Being a JEA Ambassador builds interpersonal skills, stretches your comfort level and reminds you not to take yourself so seriously,” she says. It’s a challenge she extends to all employees.
