013 – Raelynn Hawco

Share this episode:

Raelynn Hawco is a ticketed Journeyman Lady Lineman from a small town in the northeast corner of Canada.

She is living proof that you don’t have to be a big burly 6’4” dude to work in this trade.

One of the most amazing things about this trade is how diverse the work is. You can literally be working somewhere one minute and somewhere completely different the next. An entire career could be spent in one district doing distribution work or you can move around building big transmission lines, specialize in underground cable, energized barehand work, substations, or take any avenue from there. There is a place for anyone and everyone in this trade.

Raelynn has pushed through some big obstacles to get where she is today, and she has now become and advocate for other women in the trades. She is a pioneer and a leader with a long career ahead of her doing the work that she loves.
