Being Active in Your Community Makes it Feel Smaller, Like Home

Prescott Woman Magazine interviewed Amber Traina, Co-Owner of Allied Electric and member of the Prescott Chamber of Commerce. We learned about how much she values personal connections.

PWM: For how long have you been a member of the Prescott Chamber of Commerce?

Amber: For about two or three years.

PWM: Tell us about what brought you to Prescott and the role you’re in as far as employment.

Amber: My husband and I moved here from New York City, ready for a slower pace of life and more nature. We discovered Prescott when vacationing and knew we had to move to this area because it’s so beautiful. When we relocated in 2018, my husband brought with him almost twenty years of electrical experience. My background was as a business conference producer. With our two backgrounds and passion to give our community top quality electrical work, my husband founded Allied Electric. It wasn’t long before I started helping him with the office portion of the business as the second owner. We’ve been growing Allied Electric ever since.

PWM: What about the Prescott Chamber is different from other organizations in the area, and what do you personally enjoy best about being part of it?

Amber: The Prescott Chamber always has great networking events so other business owners can get plugged into each other and help each other in big and small ways. As you get more active, attend more events, and meet new people, it makes the town feel smaller, like home.

PWM: Do you serve in any additional roles within the Chamber?

Amber: I do not. I’ve considered accepting an invitation to become an ambassador, but I take the role seriously. As a mom and business owner, I want to make sure I can honor my commitments without taking time away from my family.

PWM: Do you have family here? Children? Other activities in which you participate?

Amber: We have a beautiful two-year-old daughter that gives our world color every day! My husband’s family is out East in New Jersey, while most of mine is still in Kentucky, where I’m originally from. An activity I love to make time for each week is Aerial Silks with Jen James Martin of Suspended Fluidity.

PWM: How are you involved in the community?

Amber: First and foremost, we help our community through Allied Electric every day by giving people reliable, quality electrical work they can count on and feel safe about. Outside of work, I like to volunteer to help out in local events here and there when I can make the time.

PWM: What else do you want to add that people might not know about you or what you do or offer?

Amber: We aren’t your typical electrician, getting in, getting out, then surprising you with an unexpected bill. We are 100% transparent about prices before any work is done, and at Allied Electric, we are so passionate about exceeding our customers’ expectations and experiences.
