Episode 28 is all about Women In Trades, joined with Ashley Adams who is an electrician and soon to be instructor at Camosun College here in Victoria, BC! We had so much fun for this episode and we were so excited to have Ashley as our very first IN PERSON guest on the show!!
All together, we sampled Elephant Island's Love Child- half cider half wine!! So delicious- make sure to check it out at https://elephantislandwine.com/ in the Naramata Valley! One of Chelsea's favs!
Ashley talks about some of the ups and downs of being a female in a male dominated trade and is all for female empowerment and seeing more ladies in the trades! From following in her dad's footsteps to leading the way for future females in trades- Ashley is a force to be reckoned with. Oh plus she is in a very awesome band! Here is the link to check out one of their songs! https://youtu.be/YruX-G-40Rw
