WOMEN IN FUELS
To celebrate Integrity's 10 year anniversary we are recognizing the other Alaskan women who have chosen to work in this fun and expansive industry.
Below are all of the nominees featured on social media!
Catalina Iputi - Crowley Fuels
Congratulations to Catalina on winning a $250 gift card to Salmon Sisters!
Catalina Iputi is a local delivery driver for Crowley Fuels. She has worked in the fuels industry for over two years. She started working for Crowley as a service order clerk in Juneau, then she became a tank farm operator, overseeing the day-to-day operations and equipment. She got her Class A CDL earlier this year and relocated to Crowley’s Fairbanks Terminal for her current position.
Catalina is proud to be a female CDL holder and delivery truck driver, knowing that women only make up 7.89% of the country’s Class A Commercial drivers. What she likes most about her current position is that she is part of a growing statistic that represents, not only women, but the Alaska Native community. “Every completed workday means another part of the road paved for future women in trades, and a pathway to a more inclusive world for my younger sister. That’s what makes me proud of what I do.”
Catalina’s advice for other women considering a career in fuels is “There will be days that test your limits, that feel overwhelming, that you aren’t keeping up or where your goals seem unachievable, but just remember, “We Can Do It.”
