“There are not a lot of women in the detailing industry,” said Budhai in the release. “I am deeply committed to continuing education opportunities that keep me up to date on new products, equipment and automotive technology.

“The way in which you wield a buffer and use abrasives on something as delicate as car paint and the clear coat takes a precision touch.
