What is it like working in an industry that some might see as traditionally male-dominated? Have you come up against any bias?
For now, being a female in the auto industry means we are surrounded by men. That is why I created the pledge. By taking the Women Auto Know pledge and practicing the Auto Know philosophy, the auto industry can earn respect among all genders.
Is there anything you want other women to know about working in your industry?
If you like cars, let me tell you, there are not a lot of women auto mechanics out there. There is a tremendous, lucrative opportunity for a career in the automotive industry.
What advice would you give to other women starting their own business?
You are here on purpose, for a purpose. If you feel it in your heart, activate it.
When you’re having a tough day, who or what inspires you to keep going?
I read the Bible. The Good book is my go-to all the time. My favorite verse is John 16:23.
How can female business owners support one another and their community?
I believe that having workshops is my way of being of service for other people. Having the workshops packaged is a way to pass it on for others to be of service to others in their community. These workshops bring us together, safer and provide endless support across the entire network.
What’s your “power song” and why?
There are many days I can relate to “Superwoman” by Alicia Keys. Especially the lyrics: “I’m searching for the better part of me…Gotta find the strength in me.”
