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.
