Emily Lindl is part of the Steamfitter’s union Local 601 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. But would you believe Emily worked as a flight attendant for almost a decade? For most of her 20's, Emily flew for Midwest Airlines and at the age of 30 with the company going out of business, Emily began a whole new career. 

Emily enjoys doing math. She loves strategy and efficient problem solving. Also, she loves seeing the underbellies of buildings and how things work. Basically, she is a total badass.

To put it simply a steamfitter works on and installs heating, cooling, gas, and process piping. In layman's terms, a steamfitter's main goal is to make sure whatever's flowing through the pipes keeps on flowing. Emily works with pipe made of stainless steel, carbon steel, copper, brass, pvc, cpvc, and poly propylene to name a few. She knows how to cut and bond all these materials and her favorite material to work with is Copper. Lastly, Emily's favorite offset to design is a 45 degree offset which helps with what’s known as the pressure drop.
