Viola Martinez is very passionate about diversity inclusion within Georgia Power and her community.
For nearly two decades, Martinez has acted as an on-call Spanish interpreter for Georgia Power. She started her career as a bilingual Customer Service Representative within the company. Viola is completely fluent in Spanish and English with the ability to read, write, and speak both languages.
Martinez has made it her personal mission to mentor members of the Hispanic community by participating in career day at local schools and mentoring youth through her organization affiliations such as Junior Achievement and Boys & Girls Club of America.
“I have hands-on experience in learning all the roles within Georgia Power as an acting interpreter for Spanish-speaking customers and clients. This has given me the ability to enter each classroom with a real-world approach. I have relatable work experience to share with students,” says Viola Martinez.
“When I’m invited into the classroom, I encourage students that they can accomplish everything they want. It’s important to me that they know they have a future with Georgia Power whether it’s as an employee, customer, or both," says Viola.
Viola is a graduate of Shorter University with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and a Master of Arts in Leadership.
She’s also served in leadership roles within local environmental organizations such as Georgia Power Green Team (Northwest Region) and Keep Dalton-Whitfield Beautiful.
Martinez serves the following counties: Bartow, Catoosa, Chattooga, Dade, Floyd, Gilmer, Gordon, Murray, Pickens, Walker, and Whitfield.
When she’s not encouraging students or serving on Georgia Power Employee Resource Groups for Diversity Inclusion, she’s spending time at home with her teenage son, Sammy and their two pets; Simba, (Husky and Great Pyrenees mix) and a cat named Cheeto.
