My dream is to one day own my own junkyard and body shop sitting on my own land. I wanted to know if there are any female owned junkyards? How they got started? How I could get in touch with them for some advice?

I believe the term is "salvage yard", you may have success if you search on the internet for "women owned salvage yards".

I did a search online and could not find any listings of female owned salvage yards. You might try contacting a local yard and see if they have any kind of network and from there search for women owners. Good luck.
