About The Instructor:

Fast forward many years, she has worked on hundreds of diesels both large and small. She is currently an adjunct professor for the Seattle Maritime Academy. She studied Marine Engineering at Massachusetts Maritime Academy. A former EMT and fire fighter, she shifted her focus to diesel repair and maintenance providing her expertise to businesses such A&E Truck Maintenance, Swift Transportation Company, TEC Equipment, and Freightliner Northwest to name just a few. She is now the owner of her own repair business Madame Diesel LLC (formerly Maritime Diesel Services). More info can be found at
