Getting the chance to learn more machinery has been a fun challenge! I’ve overcome barriers by being persistent and not taking no for an answer.

Keep your head high and, don’t let things get to you. You must have tough skin in this field but in saying that, you also have a lot of people that support you and help you grow.

I’m the first female operator hired by my company. The company is absolutely amazing, and I feel like it’s a big family!
