I am a native Southern Californian, having grown up in Long Beach.  After graduating with a B.A. degree in psychology from U.C. Berkeley, I spent my early adult years living in Bend, Oregon where I also completed an RN degree and license and worked as a hospital nurse, which I continued in Los Angeles at Cedars Sinai.

I met my husband Yoram Israeli folk dancing and have been married for 33 years.  My 2 grown children include a son living in San Francisco who is a product manager in a high tech company, and a daughter who is a speech language pathologist living in Sherman Oaks.

My husband and I opened A.M. Shine Electric in 1986.  Since then my job responsibilities have included development, marketing, sales and overall management.

In my free time, I enjoy travel, exercise, dancing, reading and adult ed classes.

I am a member of Shomrei Torah Synagogue and for several years have been on the Board of Directors of the Executives of the Jewish Home for the Aging.

Owner / Vice President

I was born and raised on a small farm in Israel, where I studied electronics in high school and worked in communications in the Army.  After receiving a B.A. degree in agriculture from The University of Jerusalem, I worked as an agricultural consultant.

I came to the U.S. as a young adult and initially apprenticed as an electrician.  During this time, I met my wife Janis and together we started our own business.  I am the one in the field servicing all our clients and their various electrical needs.

I enjoy the challenge of learning the newest developments in the industry and teaching my employees how to provide high quality workmanship while respecting our clients needs.

In my free time, I enjoy travel, sports, dancing, hiking and reading.

Owner / Vice President

I grew up the middle child of 3 boys in Oak Park, CA.  My father was a general contractor and from the earliest years the sounds of hammers and the smell of cut lumber became internalized as a part of who I am. My summer jobs were always on the job site with my father.

As a young adult, I had a growing interest in cars and motorcycles so I started working as an auto mechanic and segued to fabrication which led to a career in welding.

I then received a B.A. degree in history with a minor in art history from Arizona State University. After college, I worked as a business manager for an accounting firm until the opportunity arose to get my hands dirty again.

Wanting to give back to my community, I served as Youth Director at Temple Adat Elohim in Thousand Oaks, CA for 4 years.

My other interests include soccer, football, golf, flying my drone, traveling, cinema and most importantly spending as much time as possible with my fiancé.
