AUSTIN, Texas - After graduating from high school, Shelby Meyer wasn't sure what career path she wanted to follow.

"I honestly wanted to be something like a graphic designer, fashion designer or something like that, because I loved using the creative side of my mind," Meyer said.

Shelby's father noticed at an early age she excelled in math, so he suggested she go to college and study engineering.

After looking at her options, Shelby decided to go straight into the workforce and work with her dad.

"So, she got on at the CAT assembly plant, the engine assembly plant in Seguin, and found that she loved the mechanical side of it, and then eventually came to work at home because of that, you know, avenue," said Robert Meyer, Shelby's father and field welder at HOLT CAT. "So, she really enjoys the mechanical part of it, you know, even being a girl."
