NASHUA, N.H. — On March 5, 2020, the PWIPM of New England awarded its first annual Women of Excellence Award. The winner was Julie Heincelman, ACE of JP Pest Services in Milford, N.H.
Heincelman has worked for JP Pest Services for 12 years and has moved through various positions during this time. She has been a commercial service technician, a food and pharmaceutical account support specialist, an area manager, and most recently a territory manager. In 2017, she was awarded Employee of the Year at JP Pest Services.
Heincelman is very involved in the PWIPM of New England. Aside from her commitment to her job, she was an active Volunteer Firefighter and EMT for 7 years with the Lee Fire and Rescue where she received the status of Lieutenant in 2014. Heincelman proudly and effectively served her community from 2009 to 2016. Her manager, Brian Leahy, had the following comments “Julie is the type of employee any company would love to have. Her dogged determination and work ethic set the high standard. The fact the Julie has chosen to work in our industry is a blessing; her involvement raises the bar of professional pest control. I am proud to work along side Julie and learn from her each day.”
