Episode 15: Leigh Wall, Apprentice Truck and Transport Mechanic
This week, we are joined by Leigh Wall, Apprentice Truck and Transport Mechanic, Student Recruiter, and Public Speaker. Hear all about Leigh's passion for engaging women and girls in Trades, her advice for women and girls who are considering those Trades, and fun facts like her favourite word (which goes a little skin deep!). Plus, Leigh relays her experiences in her apprenticeship program as the only woman out of 15 participants.
Guest: Leigh Wall (website)
Leigh Wall is a Student Recruitment Specialist at Vancouver Community College, as well as an Apprentice Truck and Transport Mechanic. As a natural progression and out of a love for where she trained, Leigh became a student recruitment specialist with Vancouver Community College, where she shares her enthusiasm with others every day. A female ambassador for the trades, Leigh also speaks regularly on the importance of diversity in the workplace. In her spare time, Leigh is a dedicated volunteer, caring for rescued cats and kittens through the Vancouver Orphan Kitten Rescue Association (VOKRA).
