Oh hey there @kirabaybay, how’s it going over there in your kickass coveralls doing badass work on massive machinery?
Kira is a Red Seal Commercial Truck & Transport Mechanic and Certified Canadian Utility Fleet Mechanic. She has been a repeat mentor at the Skills BC Trades & Technology Conference for Women and has presented to classes at BCIT and lower mainland high schools to encourage girls and women to count the trades among their career options. She worked as a mechanic for 8 years, breaking through barriers into the “man’s world” of the trades and crashing right out the other side. She is now working in Organizational Change Management Advisor and is the Vice Chair of the BC Hydro Women’s Network.
She believes there’s no wrong way to be a woman and she’s ready to talk about it. And Grace Club is the best club she’s ever been a member of.
Come see Kira speak at our next #graceclubyvr event Dec 4th at @eastsideboxing ... check the link in our bio for all the details and get your tickets before they are gone!
