KENNEWICK, WA - It's nice to have a handyman around for those quick household fixes, but why not a handywoman?

There's a class offered to the public in our area that will help with that. With the instruction of a one of a kind “tool-belt diva”, women will know how to fix what they may have thought was unfixable.

The instructor of the class told us she learned so much of what she knows from older men who treated her like a daughter. So often she felt like women around her were not well equipped with basic repair skills under their tool-belts. Now, Melissa Davis of Kennewick wants to share what she knows from woman to woman.

"It's really intimidating to go to a plumbing aisle of a store and ask someone for help. They're just more comfortable learning from a woman I've found. I direct it to women because I'm more comfortable teaching women too," said Davis.

The handywoman of 16 years runs a part-time business called “Toolbelt Divas” in addition to managing a household with four kids.

The class is one of many offered through the Kennewick Community Education Program. They hold a class under the category of “fix-it for women” every quarter of the school year. In each class they tackle a different fix-it topic.
