We love shining the spotlight on our team members so you can get to know more about the people who make Wolfers Lighting so special.
Today, we shine the spotlight on Joyce Gravel, the manager of our lighting showroom in Waltham. Every day, Joyce exemplifies creativity and diligence. Our customers love Joyce!
We recently caught up with her for a Q&A session.
Q: How many years have you been in the lighting industry, and what drew you to this field?
Joyce: Thirty-four years ago, the restaurant I'd been running was selling out and I was going to be unemployed. Unsure of what I would do, a friend put in a good word for me with a small lighting showroom/electrical supply business. They took a chance on me, despite the fact that the only lighting knowledge I had was of a 60-watt lightbulb!
Fortunately, I fell in love with the field. The more I learned, the more I realized what I didn’t know. Lighting became a passion and a lifetime of education.
Q: How did you come to be with Wolfers?
Joyce: A friend of mine was working for what was Standard Electric at the time, and she recruited me. I had been working in lighting for nine years by that point, and I thought I knew everything there was to know… until I walked in the door here! It opened up a whole new world, because there was still so much to learn.
