Aspira Honors Con Edison Project Specialist and Queens Resident Krystle Moya

Quality is the focus of Krystle Moya’s work at Con Edison and an essential feature of her character, her cultural passions, and her motivation to help others. That attribute is how she has earned the 2024 ASPIRA Circle of Achievers Award.

For most of her 11 years at Con Edison, Moya has challenged herself and coworkers “to find problems before they find us.” Officially, she is a project specialist in Business Ethics and Compliance. That means she establishes standards to help people across the company to improve their work, whether to be more productive, more efficient, to save money, or even to be safer. And she extends that outreach to customers through programs, rebates and tips to make the cleaner, more reliable transition away from fossil fuels.

In short, it’s all about “quality.” Or as Moya says: “I just love helping others achieve their goals.”

For more than 60 years, ASPIRA has helped Latino youth gain educational excellence through leadership development activities and programs. The Circle of Achievers recognizes people who make a difference in their companies and within the Latino community.

Growing up in Orange County, N.Y. with her father, who was born in Puerto Rico, and her mother, whose parents hailed from the island, Moya never thought of working at an energy company. “If I thought of a utility, I thought of my bill,” she said. But after graduating from New York University with a bachelor’s degree in psychology, she decided to pivot after learning of a position at Con Edison in customer outreach.

“I didn’t realize Con Edison was so community oriented,” Moya said, “that we help educate our customers, and help them when they need help.”

Six weeks later, she was helping many customers after Superstorm Sandy. Her recognition from ASPIRA came after years of hard work, quality efforts that still left time for her love of Salsa music, her Astoria community and the New York Rangers.

“I was shocked and not expecting such an honor,” she said. But for her father, Ramon, who also won an ASPIRA award as a teenager, it was a full-circle moment. And an example of “quality” running in the family.
