▪️Jessica Bannister is a level 2 HVAC apprentice in Vancouver, Canada. When she is qualified, she will hold a Red Seal Certification as a Refrigeration Mechanic.
▫️Jessica is 37 years old and spent 10-12 years unhappy in an office job.
▪️She is now in this trade because of her family’s business, Cam Cool Refrigeration ( @cam_cool_inc ). They run a full service company, meaning : They install, maintain, and repair/replace cooling systems.
▫️As an HVAC mechanic, Jess is faced with challenges on a daily basis and is constantly learning new things. There is no shortage of problem solving and perfecting techniques. She is grateful to have the help and support from her father and brother, who are both teaching her the trade!
▪️In this trade, a new day always brings a new set of challenges, a new job, client, and location. No two days are ever the same. Jess gets to attend the most interesting places, often with restricted access – Which is one of her favourite parts.
▫️Jessica Says “I love this trade because it’s physically and mentally challenging. I am learning about certain tools and tricks of the trade you can use to overcome your disadvantages like lack of physical strength (I am small). It’s a great time to be a woman in the trades!”
▪️When she isn’t on rooftops or under catering trucks, Jess can be found working out, riding her motorcycle or hiking!
