Keeping the family tradition alive
When your father runs the shop department at your high school, you’re going to learn all about cars whether you’d planned to or not. That was the fate of Lois Tuffin and her six siblings as they studied auto mechanics, drafting, building construction and more great skills. Since then, she has surprised her neighbours by tuning up her car while her husband tackles the vacuuming. She has also been known to change the tires for her male colleagues while working as a newspaper editor.
Despite her late father’s mentoring, Lois chose to pursue journalism as a career. Over 30 years, she won multiple awards for reporting and leadership in the industry, before turning to freelancing. There, she connected anew with automotive repair, where she writes for various publications and companies.
With Autoflow, Lois breaks down the processes that make successful shop run smoothly and describes the tools that make it happen. As a small business operator herself, she remains attuned to managing the chaos that comes with busy days and despair when things go quiet. These days, she keeps her calendar full and wishes the same for you!
