I sat at a desk and tried to get people approved to install solar. I fought against red tape, poor management, and lacking procedural information daily in order to do my job. The sexist atmosphere meant that women were at all times to act a certain way, and the few that slipped into management dished out the worst treatment to other women. My coworkers were the reason why I kept working there as long as I did. We were all in the same boat together. I loved when I could explain things to customers and contractors to help make sense of the requirements so they could get approved. I had an ocean view from my cubicle. I learned so much about how corporations twist the truth to come out on top.
