|Last week, you got a chance to get to know one of Women Repair Zone’s instructors, Nan Zamata. If you missed that opportunity, please check out the website. This week we are spotlighting Jennifer Pope. |
Jennifer Pope, a Women Repair Zone instructor, moved to Chattanooga, looking to settle down following her husband’s military career. They met Bea while shopping for new home ideas at the 2019 Home Builders Association of Greater Chattanooga Home Show. Jennifer remembers toying with the idea of concrete planters and mentioned it to Bea as a possible workshop offering. Jennifer has taught Making Concrete Planters and, once the workshops resume, she will add Making Concrete Fountains.
“I think what Bea is offering is opening up the domain of what has been exclusively a men’s club,” said Jennifer.
Following her workshop, Jennifer received great feedback on the evaluation.
“Jenny was a great instructor and is very patient.” – Corinna H.
“This class was AWESOME! I learned so much! Jennifer was a great instructor!” – Susan W.

Starting this week, you’ll get a chance to know some of the women who teach Women Repair Zone workshops. This week we are spotlighting Nan Zamata.
Nan Zamata, a Chattanooga resident and Women Repair Zone instructor, met Bea Lurie at the 2019 Home Builders Association of Greater Chattanooga Home Show. Bea is always on the lookout for experienced new instructors and was impressed by Nan’s expertise. Following an interview over coffee, Nan signed on to teach Changing Outlets and Switches, Rewiring and Repairing Lamps, and Repairing Drywall.
“I do believe in Bea’s mission. I think there are a lot of women out there with valuable skillsets, and it’s good to pass those skills on to others,” said Nan.
At one of the workshops that Nan taught, Rewiring and Repairing Lamps, she received great feedback on the evaluation.
- “Extremely useful – everyone leaves with new skills and confidence they can do it!” –Susan S.
- “What a gem of an experience. I liked the hands-on approach in this class. It was very helpful to actually remove switches so that I could do it at home. I feel much more confident approaching electrical work at home.” –Bonnie S.
