The Halifax native will handle P.R. in Southern Virginia

MANASSAS, Va. – Shelia C. Bradley has joined Northern Virginia Electric Cooperative’s public relations division. The former legislative aide to two delegates in the Virginia House of Delegates will handle public relations in Halifax County, where she lives and where NOVEC operates its biomass power plant.

“Shelia will serve as a liaison between NOVEC and the Southern Virginia community,” says Lisa Hooker, NOVEC vice president of public relations. “As a Halifax County native, she will identify opportunities where the Co-op can support the work of charities, community organizations, and schools. She will also convey the environmental and economic benefits of NOVEC’s carbon-neutral biomass power plant in South Boston, Virginia.”  

“I’m thrilled to join forces with such a well-respected company as Northern Virginia Electric Cooperative,” Bradley says. “As one of the top 10 electric utilities in the country in customer satisfaction and reliability, NOVEC has a stellar reputation in Northern Virginia. I welcome the opportunity to spread news about NOVEC’s good works in Southern Virginia.”

As a legislative aide to two delegates, Bradley worked closely for 17 years with constituents in the 60th district. “I had the privilege of meeting and working with state and local leaders, as well as the citizens of four Southern Virginia counties,” Bradley says.

Prior to working for the delegates, Bradley owned and operated a travel agency in South Boston. She worked for what is now the Virginia Economic Development Partnership in a district that covered 18 counties, and five towns and cities in Southern Virginia. 

Bradley has served as a board member of the Virginia Tourism Corporation, Halifax County Chamber of Commerce, Tri-County Community Action Agency, and Halifax County Tourism Board.
