JEA employee Ambassadors spend thousands of hours each year in the community educating our customers about conservation, safety and the various products and services JEA offers to customers; including solutions to help track their usage, pay their bill and how best to communicate with JEA.
Our Ambassadors engage with customers and the community throughout the year in various ways:
- At community events such as the annual Home & Patio Shows, the Southern Women’s Show, the Black Expo, World of Nations, Earth Day events and many church, school and smaller community events
- Through speaking invitations to community churches, schools, civic groups, home owners associations and others that want to hear about utility conservation, utility safety, environmental topics and other topics important or relative to the group or audience
- Through tours given of our energy generation and waste water facilities. Several of our energy and water plants are available for group tours of adults and middle-school and older youths
- As instructors of financial literacy information to adults and youth in partnership with area nonprofits such as United Way’s Real Sense and Junior Achievement. Our Ambassador instructors also teach JEA’s electric and water safety Power Pals program to area first and second graders through select elementary school partnerships
To have the JEA Ambassadors participate in your event, speak at your organization, or guide you on a tour of one of our facilities, please follow one of the links below.
Spotlighting our JEA Ambassadors
As a Manager of Project Accounting, Akiesha believes everyone needs to find their gift and use that gift to help others.
Akiesha’s gift is working with numbers. She won the United States Mathematical Award in 1996, after all, while still in high school. She later received a Master’s Degree in Accounting from the University of North Florida and became a CPA for the State of Florida.
This is why she likes to teach financial literacy and entrepreneurship to elementary school students through Junior Achievement. “I love working with kids,” she said. “They’re just so honest and funny and eager to learn.”
Akiesha has worked at JEA for 11 years, and is currently the co-chair for the JEA Employee Community Health Charities Campaign. Next year she’ll chair the campaign, which raises about $100,000 annually. It’s a big job, but Akiesha’s not too worried. She knows her gift and she’s using it to help others.
