In 2011 Louise was a 15 year old high school student who had no intentions of completeing any form of higher levels of education, this put her on a mission to find a job or an apprenticeship so she could leave the school system.
After a year of talking to her careers advisor, work experiance and attending expo's she was acpted into the 2012 Cummins South Pasific Apprenticeship intake as a Heavy Commercial vehicle apprentice, from there she never looked back.
In 2016, while Louise was completing the 4th year of her apprenticeship, her mentor put her forward to compete in the 2015 regional Heavy Vehicle Mechanical competition which was held in the Illawarra. She competed in September and came second in the event.
This lead her to be the first female to compete in the Australian National Heavy Vehicle competition in Melbourne October 2016. Louise was then the first Female to ever receive a Gold Medal in the category.
The following year she trained hard to compete in the, 2017 Abu Dhabi International Competition. In October she headed to Abu Dhabi with the Skillaroos and took out 4th place in her category and Australia ranked 10th overall.
Her position has now changed from competitor to judge. She has judged at the 2018 Sydney National WorldSkills Competition, and has been Chief Judge at the Regional WorldSkills Competition at the National Construction Convention, November 2018.
For the 2021 National WorldSkills competition in her position was National Chief Judge for Heavy Vehicle Mechanics.
In 2019 she decided it was time to pass on her knowladge and she became a trainer and assessor, she love passing on her knowladge but found she was supporting students with there human skills before they could start working on the technical side of things.
This is what lead her to where she is now - a life coach, mentor, keynote speaker and industry ambassador.
Louise is passionate about giving tradespeople the tools they need to succeed and supporting business to create workplaces where tradespeople can succeed!
Louise was an ambassador for the 2019 Brisbane Truck Show. She got this opportunity from receiving Highly Commended National Heavy Vehicle Apprentice of the year.
