Workshop Speaker: Leigh Wall
Leigh works as a Student Recruitment Specialist at VCC, as well as an Apprentice Truck and Transport Mechanic. A drastic career change from legal administrator to apprentice truck and transport mechanic has empowered her and given her a passion for encouraging other women to break through barriers in non-traditional roles. As a natural progression and out of a love for where she trained, Leigh became a student recruitment specialist with the 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 - she and her senior dog form a therapy team with St. John Ambulance, and she cares for rescued cats and kittens through VOKRA.
