Meet Kimberley Rogers-Carlstrom - Member of the Service Team
I became interested in mechanics in my mid-teens when I started riding dirt bikes and pulling them apart to see how they worked, repair them and make them go better. My family has also been in the heavy truck industry for as long as I can remember and this also sparked my interest in mechanics.
I started my apprenticeship with MTU Detroit in 2009 and moved to Whitehorse Truck Centre in 2012 to broaden my experience to the whole truck. Being a part of the WTC service team is a real eye opener. The variety of jobs make a great opportunity to further my education and I hope, make me a better truck mechanic.
Being a female mechanic can get a little tough on the job, but there is always the equipment or someone who will lend a hand. The blokes are respectful of me, never discriminate and treat me like just one of the guys.
As with everything, there have been a few ups and downs, but on the whole, my experience has really paid off and I could not think of a better career. I am really looking forward to finishing my apprenticeship this year and have plans to move onto bigger and better things with WTC.
