    EP.72: Joanie Butler—"Curiosity and Grit Will Go a Long Way” 

    EP.72: Joanie Butler—"Curiosity and Grit Will Go a Long Way” 

    Joanie Butler is a Distributor Sales Manager at Arc Zone, Inc.—a top welding supply company in California. She has been with the company for 9 years, but her journey in the skilled trades industry didn’t start there. This small-town girl from northern California started dabbling in the trades as a teenager while 4-wheeling and off roading “with the guys”. Her free spirit and curiosity about how things work continued leading her to a world of adventure and exploration beginning with amateur surfing in the early 90’s. Seeking “more” Joanie taught herself how to weld, got certified as a small engines mechanic, became a top sales person and fabricator for a company that made catalytic converters, and then got recruited by Arc Zone where she is today. Join us on this episode as we pull back the curtain and explore Joanie’s adventurous journey!

Fantastic message and podcast

This podcast is a perfect representation of women supporting and empowering women. Jayme and her guests pass along such valuable advice to the younger generation of Femcanic’s. I wish this type of positive message was around for me to hear when I was first starting out as an auto mechanic. When I was a guest I felt so comfortable speaking with Jayme. She made me feel so supported and safe when sharing very sensitive stories about my experiences in the automotive industry. Thanks so much Femcanic garage!

Love what femcanics is about

I was on one of the episodes and it was an amazing and easy experience compared to other podcast and videos I’ve done with other organizations. What femcanics stands for is amazing and every female mechanic needs to listen to her podcast.
