Women In Manufacturing
As a young woman, I never considered a career in manufacturing. However, my first job out of high school at Collins Avionics in Melbourne, Florida was only the beginning of a life-long career in this industry. Manufacturing careers have many benefits, and one that is particularly attractive is the ability to receive high wages at all different levels.
When I was younger, I wanted to be Angie Dickinson, who helped redefine women’s roles on television with her progressive character as a policewoman in the 70s. As I got older, I realized that becoming Angie wasn’t an option for me, however, manufacturing became a huge interest to me because of my father. My father worked in maintenance at a manufacturing company and I would go with him to work on the weekends, so this means I’ve been working in manufacturing since I was four.
