What do you like most about your field of work? :
My favourite part about being a mechanic, is at the end of a job being able to look back and say “I fixed that”. I enjoy the daily challenges and the constant learning opportunities. There will always be new models, new technology, and new problems.

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.

Short Description of Business or Services Provided:

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!
