Jennifer Stolzenburg

Jennifer Stolzenburg grew up working on her family’s ranch, instilling a love for working with her hands. Intrepid, curious and hard-working in equal parts, Stolzenburg chose to leave ranching and develop her skillset; this was accomplished on her own at first. Then, a supervisor noticed her potential and offered to further her education via ABCNM’s electrical program.

As a female apprentice, Stolzenburg says her prior experience working in male-dominated fields never fazed her, and her decision to join the trades had little to do with societal expectations and everything to do with personal passion.

“I have found a job that suits me, even if it means going outside the social norm,” Stolzenburg says. “I hope other women see that there are opportunities for them in the trades.”
