Kurtis Gordey - Automotive Repair Technician

This is cool. This is something I can see myself doing for the rest of my life.

Kurtis Gordey may not always want to get out of bed every morning, but he always wants to get up and go to work as an Automotive Repair Technician. At the age of 17, Kurtis has found a passion in the work that he does – work that he can be proud of. “It’s almost like an adrenaline rush, the feeling you get when a job is finished, and when it’s done right.” He enjoys being a creative problem-solver, using his hands to manipulate steel to get it to do what he wants to do. By his 20th birthday, Kurtis hopes he will have earned his Red Seal certification for Automotive Repair Technician.
