"Well behaved women seldom make history!"

About Me:

I've loved cars for as long as I can remember and working on them is my life. I graduated from Greater New Bedford Regional Vocational High School, in New Bedford, MA. and majored in Collision Repair. While at Voc I participated in SkillsUSA, becoming the first female in the 34 year MA state history to win gold in Collision Repair. And the only student ever to win double gold in Collision Repair & Automotive Refinishing. Moving on to place second in Collision at the SkillsUSA 2008 Nationals. I was lucky enough to be the recipient of the Women's Industry Network's 2008 NACE Scholarship.
Currently, I am employed as an Adult Education Instructor (teaching Collision Repair and Small Engine Repair) at Voc and as an assistant manager at an ice rink. Most of my free time is spent volunteering with Voc's Collision program on the Curriculum Advisory Board and training current students for the SkillsUSA competition. I am currently attending the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth for my Business Degree and looking forward to finding my place in the Industry.

Hope you have an amazing B-Day!
Give me a shout and fill me in on what's happening in your life. I'm going to be shooting live shows from the NACE and SEMA floor this year since the shows split. I'm still looking for a crew for SEMA :)

Nice to hear from you and see what you are doing. I also think your comment abotu "Well behaved women..." is unfortunately so true, but we continue to try and make that a "once-upon-at-time" story of how it used to be. chuck
