Carrie Vos is a certified engineering technologist who has worked in post-secondary education for more than 15 years and before that as a piping and structural designer of large oil and gas facilities.
Vos says she was always interested in technical work, which led her to engineering design and drafting. Working with engineering firms, she says she was initially surprised how few women were in her workplace and she wanted to do work to encourage women into the SETT fields. She had heard of WinSETT and admired the work, so when she saw a call for board members, she knew she could contribute. Since becoming a volunteer, she’s been able to directly contribute to the success of women in SETT, specifically growing into leadership roles.
When Vos isn’t working or volunteering at WinSETT, she’s volunteering with one of several organizations she’s involved with or spending time with her family.
