Background: CJ’s father and uncle owned and ran a small garage business and due to this she was brought up in and around a workshop. By the time she was 5 years old she could name every part of an internal combustion engine, explain how it worked and by the time she was 8 she could strip and rebuild one. As she got older she started to work part-time in the garage and as soon as she left school she started full time. Shortly after this, like many other small businesses, the garage was forced to close due to a recession. As being a mechanic was the only trade CJ knew, she applied for jobs at a number of other garages. They all seemed reluctant to take on a young, pretty female mechanic, at best offering her receptionist jobs. She decided to try her luck with the armed forces and enlisted in the Royal Air Force. After sailing through trade training, easily passing the course at the top of the class, she found the job to be unchallenging. This was noticed by her superiors so they offered her the chance to become an aircraft mechanic to try and stretch her natural talents. She leapt at the chance and has since worked on everything from cargo planes to fighter jets.
