Sarah McLean started off in college taking engineering classes but soon realized she wanted to do more hands on work.
She took classes to become a mechanic and has been working at Christian Brother's Automotive for about three months.
Ron Bostick, owner of Christian Brother's Automotive, says he was surprised when Sarah came in looking for work because you don't see very many female mechanics.
Bostick says he had McLean work in the shop for a couple of days to gauge her skill level and she proved herself as a great technician.
McLean says she has gotten a few surprised faces when clients see she is their mechanic but most of the feedback has been positive and she plans on being a mechanic for a very long time.
Christian Brothers Automotive is located at 6207 82nd Street, Lubbock, TX and is open Monday-Friday, 7 am to 6 pm.
