INDUSTRIAL WORK, SAFETY AND OUTDOOR WEAR FOR WOMEN
Who am I and what is this about
This is an exclusive personal shopping experience for women in communities across western Canada. My name is Audrey Rippingale and I am founder, owner and truck driver for She Works She Plays. My history is driving trucks and running equipment. My own frustration at not being able to find good women's workwear that fit had me thinking it was time someone did something about this issue. So when an ongoing wrist injury prevented me from continuing to drive concrete trucks, which I had been doing for Island Ready Mix for the past decade, I realized the time to do something had come. This crossroads in life got my creativity flowing and the business was born. I truck from town to town with my Kenworth, my pup Maggie and my converted semi-trailer which sets up as a store on wheels.
Here is an interview with CBC Radio North in May 2016 while I was in Terrace, BC. The interview covers who I am, what I am all about and the issues that us women working in industry and trades can face when it comes to getting work wear that is functional for us.
