Setting the pace for future generations of women

<p>In honor of Women’s History Month, Southern Company is spotlighting women throughout the system to honor their hard work and celebrate their achievements.</p>
<p>Heidi Wease, apprentice lineman at Georgia Power, has been with the company since 2018.</p>
<p>Born and raised on a farm in Fremont, Michigan, Heidi enjoyed the manual work and even uses the skills she learned during those days in her role today.</p>
<p>A trailblazer in her field and an inspiration, Heidi is setting the pace for women who want to work as a member of a line crew.</p>
<p>She is always mindful of how she addresses situations at work, because she wants to be an example for our future workforce.</p>
<p>“It’s never about yourself,&quot; says Heidi.</p>
<p>Heid also wears many hats in addition to her hard hat. A mother of five children and a dog mom to French bulldogs, it is important to Heidi to make time to help her kids with homework, attend their sporting events and maintain a healthy lifestyle.</p>
