Phoebe Lindburg is a dedicated, hardworking 3rd year diesel mechanic apprentice at Simon National Carriers. She started her career at nineteen as a body truck driver with Kurtz Transport after a friend working in the industry suggested the idea of becoming a driver.
While working as a truck driver she discovered her love for trucks and a passion for mechanics. By twenty, she had her unrestricted multi-combination licence, her forklift ticket and a steady work experience job on the weekend. It wasn’t until she was twenty-four that she finally received an apprenticeship in the industry.
Phoebe hopes to inspire women to consider a trade upon leaving school and break down barriers that women face in the industry.
