“Like three pair of pants, four sweaters and a winter jacket kind of cold,” said a smiling Holly Faulkner, who had just unloaded her first lobster boat of the day early Monday afternoon.
One of a handful of designated lobster buyers here at Big Bras d’Or’s Factory Wharf, the 22-year-old has faced the elements head-on since lobster fishing season opened here in mid-May.
Her job description includes hauling a few thousand pounds of lobster, six days a week. She has not missed a day of work.
About a year ago, after graduating from with a degree hospitality and tourism management from Cape Breton University Holly began a job many of us know little about. Andrew Rankin shares more of her story here.
