How I Want to Participate in PowerHouse
I am excited to be part of this amazing organization and look forward to connecting!
What motivates and inspires you?
Anything creative and beautiful – nature, people, art, books…
Who are your personal ‘Sheroes’/Female Role-Models?
The amazing women around me that are doing such incredible things – there are so many, too many to name. I am connected with business women and entrepreneurs that inspire me on a daily basis with the things they are doing and how they make an impact on others.
What technology/literature/art/seminars/ideas do you love, and recommend to others?
I absolutely LOVE learning. I latch onto every opportunity I can find to learn new skills! Some books (though it is very hard to narrow this list!) that have had a major impact on me: Eckhart Tolle – The Power of Now, Amy Cuddy – Presence & all things Brené Brown.
I am always motivated and inspired after conferences and have enjoyed Athena Pack, Innovate Montana, MT Young Professionals – all here in our great state!
In our world of technology and internet, online communities provide a way to connect those even in the most remote areas. My favorite community is, of course, our Living Legacy Club — where women in business can come together for support, resources, learning and endless inspiration. We also host an annual Recharge & Realign Retreat where we gather together to recharge our minds, bodies and souls and realign our goals, priorities and intentions for the year ahead.
How do you reboot?
Montana is such an absolutely amazing and awe-inspiring place to live and get out into nature. I love hiking, skiing, hot spring soaks, taking in the mountain views, days on the lake… Art and crafting is high on this list as well – painting, drawing,
What is your biggest accomplishment, so far?
Without a doubt, I am most proud of the life I’ve built for myself and my two children, James and Ella. They are both so smart, funny, caring and kind-hearted — two incredible, loving little humans who give me reason to push on and be better every single day.
What is the biggest career risk you’ve ever taken?
I would have to say making the leap of full time entrepreneurship. CS Lewis said that “Hardships often prepare ordinary people for an extraordinary destiny…” The first few years were H.A.R.D. But I DID IT and became stronger, smarter, skilled, DETERMINED woman.
What is the ‘lasting legacy’ you hope to leave?
I hope that I am remembered for empowering and lifting up other women. I firmly believe in the adage “rising tides lift all boats” and the best thing we can do for ourselves is to lift up those around us.
Words of wisdom you want to share with Montanan women?
🖤 Trust your gut – it is RARELY wrong.
🖤 Stay true to your passion – if you love what you do, it won’t feel like work, it will feel like living!
🖤 Network like you love it (even if you hate it!) – the power of a strong network is limitless – collaborations, word of mouth, external expertise…
🖤 NEVER stop learning – when we stop learning, we stop GROWING, and when we stop growing, we stop LIVING. Do you have any other comments or things you’d like to share? About your work, how you started your business, why you felt the need to become a leader in your community, etc.
