Name: Amanda Weaver
Position: Inspections Coordinator (Charlotte)
Honestly, I never thought I would make a career out of this industry – I always thought it was for men when I was a kid.
VSC has been part of my life as far back as I can remember. My dad would bring me to the Baltimore office on Bring Your Daughter to Work Day, and I’d learn more about what he and the other employees were working on. Though it didn’t seem important to a 10-year-old girl at the time, I still remember how much everyone seemed to enjoy what they were doing.
We moved to Charlotte when I was 14, and, about five years later, I was offered a part-time job to help the office manager – she was the only person doing the work that four women now handle. After a few months, she offered me a full-time admin job, and, not long after that, I was given the opportunity to get more involved in booking, billing and dispatching.
Our district was growing so fast that a few years later, when our lone inspections manager was overwhelmed, I was fortunate to be able to jump in and get hands-on experience with fire protection. That was when I realized this wasn’t “just a job” anymore.
Educating our customers, making sure they’re up to code and developing relationships has become what I am passionate about (and the fact that I also have awesome inspectors on my team doesn’t hurt either). Being at VSC feels like being part of a family. I’ve been with the Charlotte district for more than seven years now, and I still wake up excited for work. We have a blast, work hard and remain a team, even on the tough days. Everyone has their bad moments, their disagreements – but we meet, discuss and grow as a team. That’s what I love most about this company.
Working in an industry that protects lives, learning something new about these systems every day, and developing relationships and partnerships means I never once get bored! Hard work is rewarded, and I don’t plan on stopping where I am now. VSC continues to push me to move forward and better myself, and I will continue to do my very best for a company that absolutely deserves it.
