Cooperative enhances services with addition of experienced staff member
To further enhance La Plata Electric Association’s member care, Donna Arriza has been selected as a new Customer Service Representative. Based at LPEA’s headquarters in Bodo Industrial Park, Durango, Arriza works with LPEA customers on billing issues, new accounts and the cooperative’s various products and services.
Raised in Delta County, Colo., Arriza comes to LPEA from the La Plata County Clerk’s Office, where she oversaw coordination of elections held in the county, including LPEA’s board of director elections. She joined the county staff nearly eight years ago, initially handling customer information, following her return to Colorado after a 15 year “side trip” to California. While in Orange County, Calif., she worked as Customer Care Manager for the Irvine Company.
“We’re thrilled to have Donna as part of the team,” said Betsy Lovelace, customer service manager. “Her wealth of experience from her varied positions over the years has prepared her perfectly for this position with LPEA.”
The mother of two grown boys, Arriza and her husband are active in Durango’s outdoor pursuits.
“I’d heard a lot of great things about LPEA, so I’m excited to be part of it now,” said Arriza. “I enjoyed working at the county, but am now looking forward to this new chapter in my life.”
LPEA, a Touchstone Energy Cooperative established in 1939, provides to its more than 30,000 members, with in excess of 42,000 meters, safe, reliable electricity at the lowest reasonable cost, while being environmentally responsible.
