Bogi developed an interest in automotive technology in high school, where she rebuilt her first car, a 1974 Volkswagon Beetle, and convinced the school board to continue funding industrial arts programs, arguing for the value of teaching skills that would be useful throughout life. After Graduating from Oberlin College in Ohio, where she majored in pre-law and women’s studies, Bogi decided to pursue her dream of becoming an auto mechanic. She earned her degree in Automotive Technology at Universal Technical Institute in Phoenix, AZ, and worked as a master BMW technician in New York and Arizona before starting 180 Degrees Automotive, a full service auto repair shop where she also offers classes in basic car care. Her Mission is to inform and empower her customers and students to take an active role in caring for their vehicles, and to encourage other women to pursue careers as auto mechanics.
