JESSICA BANNISTER

Level 2 HVAC Apprentice at Cam Cool Inc - BC

Chair of Women in HVACR

Jessica is currently a Level 2 HVAC Apprentice at her family’s company, Cam Cool Refrigeration Inc. in
British Columbia. When she becomes qualified, she will hold a Red Seal Certificate as a Refrigeration
Mechanic.


Jessica is a 3 rd generation HVAC contractor. Her father was an apprentice for his dad in the 1970’s and
her brother followed in his footsteps right after high school. The trades were never considered an
option for Jessica, so she attended university and spent 10+ years in corporate offices behind a desk.
She joined her family’s business in 2017 first working in the office and later registering as an apprentice
in March 2018.


Jessica wishes to bring awareness to women in the trades, specifically women in HVAC-R, encouraging
young people (girls especially) to consider it as a career option.
Jessica finds working in the field as a commercial/industrial HVAC technician challenging and rewarding.
No two days are ever the same and she is constantly learning. She says she will never stop learning! She
gets to work in interesting places, in various industries and helps people solve problems.
