Trade: Fitter and Turner. Specialising in Maintenance.
My trade story began in yr 8 at school. After completing metal work and realising I loved working with my hands I began to look for work experience in the engineering fields. My then careers advisor wouldn’t allow me to find a suitable employer in the industry and steered me towards something “more fitting”.
I followed family tradition and did the work experience with a local bakery and hated it.
In year 10 I begun VET Engineering and continued into yr 11.
I then applied for an apprenticeship with ADI as a fitter & machinist.
Become the first female to finish any apprenticeship at the site. (Then employing 400 plus)
From there I moved on to a new employer and commenced the position of facilities and maintenance supervisor.
As of 2018 I will begin a new chapter of my career as a sales rep for a bearing supply company.
