Three words to describe you: Passionate, resilient, motivated.

What do you do?
I am a welder/fabricator.

What is a typical day like for you?
I wake up at 4:00 AM, drive one and a half hours to work, work from 6:00 AM until 5:30 PM,
and then I drive 45 minutes to my second job. I make it home around 10:00 PM after going to the
grocery store. Then cook dinner, eat by 11:00 PM, bed by 11:30 PM and then I do it all again the
next day.

What would people be surprised to learn about your job?
My job consists of grinding, torching, fabricating, and other functions. I paint and set concrete
and read and write blueprints.

What work related build/structure or event are you most proud of?
My most proud build is a water truck built from scratch without any leaks.

Who are you competing for?
I am competing for my family, my children, and me.

Describe the phrase "dirty hands, clean money":
My work is considered dirty because I deal with being in the dirtiest elements yet it is a legit job
that pays well.

Why do you want to win?
I want to change my family’s financial means which will eventually lead to me being able to help
others push to succeed in life.

What makes you tough as nails?
I am a single mom of four working two jobs, 16 hour days, and working in an environment that
takes a lot of physical and mental strength daily.
