The Plumbette is the intellectual property of Rebecca Senyard and was the name used to promote plumbing with a woman’s touch throughout Brisbane in 2008 when her family business changed from servicing commercial clients to domestic. It was only natural for Rebecca to start a blog under her name The Plumbette.
The Plumbette is Rebecca’s blog on all things plumbing, including experiences working in a ‘man’s world’. It’s a blog that is written for anyone who has an interest in plumbing or for those that don’t but would like to grasp an understanding on why a plumbing issue has occurred. Rebecca shares part of her personal life too about her journey to juggle being a wife and raising family while pursuing her career.
Rebecca previously worked in her family business Jacol Plumbing. She has been working in the plumbing industry for over 8 years. Rebecca is currently on maternity leave.
Rebecca has been married for 9 years to the love of her life Jacob. They have a nearly 4 year old daughter named Esther, a 1 year old daughter named Magdalene and another baby due in July 2014. Rebecca also runs another business called Styled by Bec. You can check out her blog about fashion here.
Plumbing and fashion are on opposite scales of the career sphere but Rebecca believes in pursuing your dreams and giving anything a go. She lives by the motto, ‘Plumber by day, Stylist by night!’
This blog is NOT a tool to do your own plumbing handiwork. All plumbing should be carried out by a licensed Plumber. If you require the services of a plumber in your local area enquire at your local Reece or Tradelink store for a reputable plumber and make sure they have a GOLD Card BSA license.
