JEA Ambassadors: Engaging and Educating Our Community

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.

Community Ambassador of the Month

Tia Kalina began working as an office support associate at the Brandy Branch Generating Station in 2011 through Randstadt, and became a full-time JEA employee in 2016. Not long after, she signed up to be a part of the Ambassador Program. 

Her love for children made her participation in Power Pals a natural fit. Tia feels that being in the classroom is a very rewarding experience and believes Power Pals makes learning fun for kids, while demonstrating the importance of the services JEA provides. The conclusion of each presentation brings hugs and smiles from the students. To Tia, this confirms that her efforts are making a difference.  

Being an Ambassador and getting out into the community is just a small part of what she does at JEA, but it’s one of her favorite things to do. She’s grateful that JEA demonstrates its commitment to “building community” through this program. The Ambassador activities are so numerous, there’s something that will appeal to everyone. Tia offers encouragement to others saying, “I recommend you step out of your comfort zone and become a JEA Ambassador — you won’t regret it.  Getting out in the community shows our customers that we care and want to do all we can to make where we live a better place!”
