Women Auto Technicians Can Do Anything They Put their Minds To


– I think one of the big things
is my father never told
me I couldn’t do it.
I never went out in
the garage and he said,
oh, you’re a girl, you can’t do that.
So I never put a glass
ceiling in front of myself.
I never told myself I
couldn’t do something.
I always, still have that feeling today,
and I’ve taught my kids this,
you can do anything you want
and nothing can stop you but yourself.
– I think that younger women today
don’t see the same barriers
that we see, or I saw,
although I was very
fortunate to have a father
who didn’t think what I should be doing
is cooking, sewing, and
wearing white gloves.
I actually was in the garage
helping my father fix the car.
He was way ahead of his time,
but I think that messages
that younger women
that are looking at career,
they’re getting different messages
that they can do anything.
They’re not limited, and so because jobs,
as technicians, are so technology driven,
it’s not the greasy job that it once was.
