Demeny Pollitt
Body: 

A Vermont Technical College graduate in automotive technology, Pollitt, 34, dreamed of opening an all-girl garage offering full service car repairs.  After working at well-established dealerships around the state but dissatisfied with working in traditional male-dominated garages, she took the leap and opened her own shop in South Burlington with the help of her business partner and mother, Donna.  Girlington Garage offers free car care clinics to educate and empower car owners and prides itself on its transparency of service and sensitivity to the needs of female car owners who may feel intimidated by mainstream garages. Although her garage is not completely all-female due to a lack of skilled female technicians, Girlington Garage is going strong with plans to open a second shop.
