Title

The Queen of Concrete grinding concrete

Description

Still grinding and finishing concrete at 55. I started doing concrete in 1976 at 17 years old. I am 5 feet weigh 100 lbs and I believe women are capable of anything they put their minds to. In 1976 there were no sexual harassment laws..not that I knew of anyways. I never let anyone disrespect me or break me, I was not intimidated by any men, and because I worked harder than most men and was more productive, they had to eventually show me that respect. I worked for one company for 19 years and the guys called me "The Queen of Concrete".
