Paola Morales, who was born and raised in Maracaibo, Venezuela, was inspired to work in the electrical trade by her dad, who worked as a supervisor for an electric utility. After graduating from high school, she immediately knew she wanted to study a subject related to the electrical field.

“Most of my uncles and aunts were engineers, so I decided to study electrical engineering,” she says.

Assistant Project Manager

As an assistant project manager, Paola Morales is responsible for document control, submittals, material tracking, and pulling weekly reports on the financials of all projects in Tennessee, Arizona, and Texas.

Morales, who graduated second in her engineering class from her university, completed safety and technical training sessions/courses for project management and leadership. She considers making the decision to come to the United States as the best thing she could have done for her career and personal growth.

“Coming from a different country where you don’t have a lot of opportunities in the industry helped me to think out of the box,” she says.

She says she worked hard to get her to the point where she is today.

“I feel so honored and proud of being able to get from a third world country all the way to this,” she says.

“I’m thankful for God and my family for always being there for me. If you can dream it, it can happen.”

During her time at Rosendin, she has learned about all phases of a project from start-up to execution to close-out. She says teamwork is her favorite and most challenging part of her job.

In the future, she would like to serve as a project executive for her company.

“I want to be the leader, the person who other follows and inspire,” she says. “I’ll work hard and do everything I have in my power to make it happen.”
