I have been in the industry almost 15 years now. I started at Jiffy Lube out of high school and worked there for 5 years. Worked at Honda as a technician for 6 years and I am now working for Mercedes Benz 4.5 years and counting. I love working on car’s, I do not shy away from any job. My goal is to become a master tech here at Mercedes.
I am a third year apprentice, I have been in the trade for 6 years. I am currently working at Heffner Lexus in Kitchener, Ontario. Once I achieve my provincial license I plan to hit the ground running to complete the last remaining courses for my Master Hybrid Certification. I am a mentor with Skills Ontario, I share my experiences and knowledge to encourage young women to enter the trades.
My goal is to bring more awareness to women working in the trades. I want to empower young females who may want to explore and learn more about what it means to work in a trade. The trades are predominantly male dominated industries, and that may intimidate young women to shy away from the idea. But the women I have featured have been breaking down the stereotypes, and opening doors for the generations behind us, and their stories NEED to be heard!
