Meet Louise Azzopardi

Louise Azzopardi, the Fixer Pathfinder, is working on some parts from a big truck which she is fixing. The truck is behind her.

Louise grew up on a farm, surrounded by cars, motorbikes, and tractors, and she soon discovered a real passion (and knack) for fixing things. At the age of 15, she started a heavy vehicle apprenticeship, and through a combination of hands-on learning and persistent study, she learnt a lot about fixing vehicles and machines. Louise’s curious nature led her to ask numerous questions and make mistakes, which ultimately served as valuable learning experiences. Louise is now a mentor, teaching others her trade and offering support to other women interested in pursuing similar work. Witnessing the satisfaction and happiness on her customers’ faces is one of the best parts of the job, according to Louise.

“I wanted to work with my hands. And I knew that. And that’s what led me into the mechanical field.”
