A LITTLE BIT ABOUT STEFANIE...

As much as you might think a tradie lady in 2019 is practically the norm, the reality is, it still comes with hurdles. Enter Stefanie Apostolidis; the Carpenter and Site Manager out of Melbourne behind @melbournechippychick. Stef has been working as a carpenter for six years, and has studied further in construction and site management, with aspirations to become a fully-fledged builder down the track.

Stef started her page to share what she does with those who are interested. For the large part, Stef shares her favourite tools and the equipment she uses on a daily basis - she’s mad for them. Tune into her Instagram to watch her on the jackhammer/saw/drill/every tool under the sun singing along to her favourite tunes, while demonstrating that she knows how to get it done.

Between tips and tricks, Stef is championing women in the industry.

As the face of the Tradie Lady Club, Stef wants to make a change in the industry - she’s here to debunk the negativity, and she wants women in trades to be taken seriously. Stef wants to encourage more women to feel confident in pursuing a trade, to create a community for female tradies, and to raise awareness, as well as just generally normalising women in trades. Managing a website, Stef sells Lady Tradie merchandise that helps women trades to feel connected to one another, also selling stickers where all profits go towards improving their community.

Stef is just doing her thing - but has managed to weave this wonderful proactive energy and exposure into her everyday activities that benefits other lady tradies and encourages aspiring tradies to begin their own journeys.
