Just a stay-at-home mom rocking the world. And leading the fight to repair.
“Jones found the repair work satisfying, and repairing electronics became a new hobby. ... Then she listed herself on eBay as a mail-in motherboard repairperson – within months, repair shops across the country were sending her micro-soldering jobs that were too complex for them.”
