Rachel De Barros is one of several women who are breaking down the stereotype in the auto industry. A few decades ago, some jobs were reserved for only men and it was almost unthinkable to see women in such industries. Like the auto industry, where most people thought jobs that involved engines and repair of cars were things that only men could do and a world where women actively worked as mechanics was impossible.
As someone who has found her passion in assembling and disassembling car engines, Rachel has grown to become the Chief Marketing Officer and Executive Producer for Gearhead Diva, a Do It Yourself car building community. Her company has also made inroads into television with shows like All Girls Garage.
These roles have made Rachel a successful woman and a celebrity in America with large followers on various social media platforms. You can learn more about the American star of Brazilian origin below.
