A fierce advocate for gender equality and lifting other women up, I live by the words of Denise Juneau, "women can do hard things."

As a 2017 NEW Montana Leadership Fellow, I have acquired knowledge and a skill set in the importance of risk taking as a leader, raising my hand despite having the 110% correct answer, and am looking into opportunities to run for political office.
My time as the Executive Assistant to the Director of the Montana Racial Equity Project has been a learning experience in grassroots organization and leadership, both visionary and organizational.
Working as the Assistant to the founder and manager of the Townsend Collective has cultivated a deeper understanding about the importance of personal leadership and advocacy in terms of entrepreneurship and lifting other women up towards success.
Through my work as a Student Associate at the Montana State Leadership Institute, I have learned about the leadership skills of; vulnerability, effective team management, event coordinating, and trial by fire.
As a player and coach in both Speech and Debate and Fastpitch Softball I have both learned and instilled the importance of being a leader who can connect with others in high stress situations and can form and manage a team that works together towards a common goal.
How I Want to Participate in PowerHouse
I am putting out an ask for mentors who can offer insight and guidance into the following areas:
- Running for office; campaign management for others and myself, issue advocacy, staying true to core values
- Entrepreneurial skills; managing and forming a team, financial leadership, self branding and marketing
- Balancing life and work; family and career, things young women should know
I am also calling for other young women who may be looking for someone who can provide advice or an ear to listen, with a similar perspective (college student, fairly broke, high motivation, willingness and determination to do it all).
