Cosseboom shared the backlash she receives for her hobby and her work in the construction industry, she states: “Entering the construction field was a decision I made when I was 18. My father has been a self-employed plumber for 40 years so I started working for him on and off straight out of high school.”

The passionate biker explained that while she did give a few other potential career paths a whirl, she was drawn back to plumbing every time. “My advice to other women is don’t ever let yourself think you can’t do something.
