Jenna Hendricks’s passion and drive started at a very young age, helping her father in his plumbing company. Jenna acted as his little assistant from her primary school days, literally learning in the trenches to help her father fix burst water pipes and mains.
Jenna studied Business Management and graduated with her diploma in Civil Engineering and Building Construction Plumbing at False Bay TVET College. She is now employed with Davids Group Construction and has registered her own business, which we are confident will take off to great heights.
Jenna has been working at Davids Group Construction as a project manager. Her business management skills has equipped her to address the administrative aspect and her civil engineering studies give her a discerning understanding of the construction industry. Her job entails being involved on site in construction projects from the tender and procurement level, to ensure the projects are completed on time and within budget.
This entrepreneurial artisan is ambitious, with a clear plan for her future. Being passionate about civil engineering, Jenna takes any opportunity to learn more, even if it’s the labourer’s task of chopping out bathroom tiles.
Jenna believes that more females will consider civil engineering, especially since technology has made plumbing easier. “Parts are lighter and better designed for easier assembly and installation,” says Jenna, who notes that the need for smaller maintenance-driven projects will become greater, as water scarcity will force people to be less wasteful.
This young lady is on her way, and we wish her all the success for her future.
