More about Cheryl Altany

She helped him take apart a car engine, clean all the parts, and then put it back together. When she turned the car key and heard the engine start, Cheryl felt empowered and realized that she could do anything! Cheryl now works at Carrier and supplies safety technology to education campuses.
