149. At 19, her high school trades program, drive and determination has set her on the fast track!
We hear often about how shop class has been disappearing from high schools across the country, but we don’t often hear about often incredible CTE high school programs that serve multiple high schools and are popping up around the country.
Tonight’s guest, Kaity Trubl, is a recent grad of one of these programs. @westmec serves the north west valley in Phoenix and offers career and trades training programs to be jealous of. She is not yet 20 years old, but her career is already on the fast track. From the moment she picked up a spray gun, she felt at home and knew this is what she wanted to do. She took first place in @skillsusa Arizona in both her junior and senior years, and was 7th and 8th in the nationals those two years. She has been working at Caliber Collision since graduating and is already on production based pay.
Kaity has also been helping extensively with the Iron Maven All Female Build, AND helping another one of the ladies do a restoration on her beetle at @girlganggarage. She’s driven, ambitious and not afraid of jumping in and pushing her own skill set. We’ll be chatting about her school program, skills USA, the transition to the work force, and so much more!
