How I Want to Participate in PowerHouse
Helping entrepreneurs and our communities!
What motivates and inspires you?
My Family and Friends, I have a great bench of people that I rely on daily to bounce ideas off of.
Who are your personal ‘Sheroes’/Female Role-Models?
My mom for so many reasons. She managed UPS for many years which is not a 9-5 job, more like 9-9 while juggling 3 kids and helping my dad farm. She is the type of person who can do anything she sets her mind to.
What technology/literature/art/seminars/ideas do you love, and recommend to others?
Out of any course of I’ve taken I always recommend Profit Mastery, I think its important for everyone to understand financial statements and this course presents it in a manner everyone can understand.
Favorite book I’ve read recently is The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society.
Favorite album at the moment: Turnpike Troubadours, A long way from your heart.
I love the idea of Powerhouse, it has been a great asset to our community. I personally have met so many great women through the group and look forward to our monthly meetings!
How do you reboot?
In my day to day I’m always on the go, so in my downtime I like to spend time golfing, reading and spending time at home.
What is your biggest accomplishment, so far?
Graduating college, from the age of 5 I had always thought I was going to be a doctor. When I started college, I started in pre-med which was completely not the right program for me. After a few times switching majors I landed in finance and could not be happier with my decision.
What is the biggest career risk you’ve ever taken?
Leaving a career, I enjoyed for a new one that interested me but I wasn’t sure I would enjoy as much. (The risk was 100% worth it, I enjoy my new career more than I thought possible)
What is the ‘lasting legacy’ you hope to leave?
I would like to leave a positive change on as many people that I can. I want to better my community for future generations. I hope to help many people realize their dreams of being an entrepreneur. I want to have a couple kids, so that I can impact their lives as much as possible before I die, in a good way.
Words of wisdom you want to share with Montanan women?
I just want to leave everyone with my favorite quote: “Whether you think you can or think you can’t, you’re right.” -Henry Ford
