Founder Story Nugget

” Banks is a self-described auto airhead hated all of her automotive buying and repair experiences. Frustrated with the lack of resources educating women on car care and her inability to find a female mechanic in the Philadelphia area, Patrice enrolled in automotive technology school to learn how to work on cars. Her mission with Girl Auto Clinic was to create a place she wanted to bring her car for repair and maintenance. She has since made it her mission to educate and empower women through their cars!

…The #sheCANic movement educates and empowers women through their cars. Patrice educates in a shame-free, relatable, and engaging way to women looking to learn practical information about their vehicles.”
