Mary Coulter is a strong advocate for women in the electrical industry. A keen and fast learner with a strong work ethic, she started her apprenticeship with GTNT in the Power Careers Program. Previously, Mary had been working in retail/hospitality but wanted an occupation that would challenge her and give her the necessary skills for a successful career. She chose a dual qualified trade and now works with GEMCO where she has gained exposure to many areas within the electrical field. Throughout her apprenticeship at GEMCO, Mary has held various leadership roles, including delegating work to various contractors during a port shutdown, and teaching younger apprentices basic electrical skills.
