Mojica Making Name for Herself in Towing

According to the Statewide Towing Association of Massachusetts, there are more women becoming tow operators. Bianca Mojica is a tow operator with Todisco Towing in Boston and is one of the few women towers. She may get some funny looks when she pulls up, but she says there's never any second-guessing when they see her in action.

"It's a little stereotypical," said Mojica. "The reactions are never-ending. They are never new. I love figuring out the puzzle ... How am I going to get this out? What am I going to do? What's my next move?

"I don't have any limitations," she continued. "I'm very handy. I'm very hands-on. So, I catch on pretty quickly."

Mojica used to drive tractor-trailers so Todisco's huge rigs, she says, are easy to handle.

Todisco says they are always looking for new operators and Mojica hopes to see other eager women joining their team.

"It's not easy, but it's definitely fun. If you love action and love hands-on stuff, it's definitely something to be in," she said.
