Ink & Iron Event Coverage
"Another testament to Noack’s accomplishment was the presence of Victoria Ellis, the mastermind behind the International Women’s Automotive Society. Ellis had made the trek from Michigan, where she works in a corporate technical service capacity for Chrysler (FCA). Her not-for-profit organization aims to connect and encourage women in the automotive sector. Barely 26 years old, Ellis is a diesel tech who has climbed the corporate ladder at FCA, but wants to do more.Her father, who was documenting the event with his camera, said Ellis had told him she wanted to work with cars when she was only six years old. Her mother, who was manning the registration and raffle, smiled and nodded. Ellis clearly has her eyes on the prize – she wants to connect internationally with women who have a passion for all things automotive.
In all cases, these are young women who are not afraid to reach beyond their grasp.
It gives me great hope for the future of automotive – and well beyond."
