Power to the people
Flicking on a switch has become a life-changing career for a Davoren Park woman who has found success through self-determination.
Playford Alive 2012 Local Hero Award winner Caroline Tindale has been working for three years as a draftsperson at SA Power Networks after completing the Powerful Pathways for Women program in 2011.
The former call centre operator returned to study after losing her job to help regain her confidence and she wants more women to be empowered to follow her lead.
“I wanted a career, not a job,” she says.
“My dream was to be a local electrician but I ended up designing power stations.”
