Lulu: Automotive Technology
When I deployed in 2013, I went to Afghanistan. I got to work on big diesel trucks and it was a lot of fun. When I got out of the Marine Corps, I was like, "Alright, well, what do I do now?" I heard that SMCC had an Automotive Program. When I came to SMCC, everyone was very excited that I wanted to be a mechanic in the first place. So it solidified my decision.
One of my advisors pushed me to intern at the Scarborough Public Works and then after that, I got the full-time position. So it goes to show that they really do care where you're going to work after you graduate. We get a lot of benefits, 401k, health, dental... The men that I work with are hilarious. It's just such a great place to work.
I really enjoy what I do, and I wouldn't be there if it had not been for Southern Maine Community College. I'm very proud to be the first woman mechanic to work at Scarborough Public Works. It's been a great ride so far.
SMCC. It's time!
