Our 2022 Winner

Veronica Miller (Center) – Bobbi Hill (L) and Liz Hill (R)

Our 2022 Winner, Veronica Miller, is a 35-year-old mother of three children. She lives in Charleston, South Carolina and attended Trident Technical College, enrolled in their residential HVACR program, but also plans on continuing her education on to the commercial side as well.

She had a 13-year career in nursing but felt a calling to do something else. She was working as a home hospice nurse when she saw firsthand some of the living conditions some the patients under her care were experiencing. She realized that the energy industry too could be a very rewarding career.

Veronica’s goals include owning her own company. She wants to be able to find energy efficient and cost-effective ways to give back to people in the community.  To read more about Veronica and, get an idea of what details she provided to us, visit our Blog.
