Kadence Jimenez, a mother of three, was working a minimum-wage job at an assisted living facility for five years when she enrolled in a free pre-apprenticeship program at Oregon Tradeswomen, a nonprofit that trains and prepares women to work in construction and other trades. Jimenez enjoyed the work and decided to pursue carpentry after a man told their group during a tour of different trades that women couldn't do drywall.
