“ There are three things to aim at in public speaking: first, to get into your subject, then to get your subject into yourself, and lastly, to get your subject into the heart of your audience.”

– Alexander Gregg

My Story

I grew up in Aloha OR, just 15 Miles out side of Portland. Growing up in a small town and being surrounded by forests and nature made for a fun childhood. I have always had a mind for business and asked for a subscription to Money magazine at age 12.  

Managing people came easily to me. At 17 I was the department manager at a store and had employees double my age working under me. This has continued throughout my career. About 15 years ago, I started speaking at Rebuilding America meetings. At this time I was managing a sales team of 20. I developed creative incentives and unique ways to empower my team. I started writing and published articles on employee retention through empowerment. I haven’t stopped writing or speaking since; as this is a true passion of mine. 
After the recession of 2008, I had the opportunity to work for a very large international general contractor where I started learning construction. I had some previous knowledge and education to help as well. While wrapping my arms around the trades, I discovered that I was a minority. Meaning females make up for only 9% of Construction. That when my years of empowering others kicked in. I enjoy empowering women and everyone. As an executive at a General Contractor now, I use my voice to bring awareness to the issue and to empower women to stick with the trade even through the hard and frustrating times. This can be relayed into many different situations when I speak on them. 
I am passionate about speaking, writing and empowering others. 

My Values & Beliefs

Accountability

is being responsible and answerable to our behavior, and in doing so we create a sense of trust from others.

Appreciation

is recognizing and enjoying the good qualities of someone or something, and all that life has to offer.

Authenticity

is being honest, genuine and real. We show our true selves and do not compromise our values to be accepted by others.

Creativity

is being able to go beyond traditional ideas, and create meaningful unexpected new ideas, by using our imagination.

Dependability

is being able to demonstrate that we are reliable and worthy of trust. People know they can count on us.

Focus

is being able to concentrate on a particular activity and give it our full attention. When you can “zero in” on a particular outcome, more often than not you will be successful.

Self-reliance

is being able to rely on our own power and resources and not those of others. Those that do the best in life realize early on that no one is going to save them. When we rely on ourselves, we become strong.

Welcome to the red lipstick movement!

Strong women have an important role in our lives as mothers, teachers, sisters, and more, and we are so thankful for everything that we’ve learned from them. Whether you had a strong mother who showed you unconditional love or a strong female role model who helped you to find yourself, most of us know a woman who had an impact on our lives. 

To be a strong woman means that you recognize your ability to makes mistakes, and to rise from them. Regardless of what your mistakes are, you know that going through them will cause you to learn lessons and move forward for the better.
