Spotlighting Our Employee Volunteers
For Felita, a Senior Accountant at JEA, volunteer work revolves around two very important communities: her church and her work.
Felita has been a member of the Arlington Regency and Fort Caroline Kingdom Hall for the last 36 years. Years ago, she joined her church’s Regional Building Committee to help build congregations in Jacksonville and other cities, volunteer work she has done ever since.
This work has given Felita an expertise in construction projects that easily translated into volunteering at HabiJax, both on her own and through JEA. Felita can do HVAC, drywall, framing, roofing, siding and landscaping. Whenever JEA works on a HabiJax home, chances are good you’ll find Felita Rackley there.
“People think we’re all about ‘pay your bill.’ But we’re really not,” said Felita, who started at JEA 17 years ago as a customer care consultant and worked her way up through the ranks to senior accountant. “It’s good to get out in the community so people can meet us and see that we really believe in Building Community.”
