Welcome to Women Do Everything!
I'm excited to unveil the next chapter for our company! We have so many amazing opportunities and new partnerships! I'm looking forward to working with the public and private sectors in fulfilling our mission!
I launched my electrical company when I was 28 years old in the sunroom of my apartment. I was a single mom with a six year old son. Who would've thought I would be here 20 years later helping women with the same humble beginnings? I have always had to be better to be considered equal to my male counterparts. I don't know what it is to have an opportunity without obstacles. I remember not knowing what to do or where to go to get the information I needed! Google was only 2 years old when I started my business; we advertised in phone books! We didn't have Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, or Instagram. Business looked a lot different back then! I have survived 9/11, The Great Recession of 2008, and now the COVID-19 Pandemic in business! It's a blessing and an honor to share the knowledge that I have gained over the years. Women have always done everything; we just never received the credit! My personal mission is to increase the percentage of women in male-dominated industries and enable these women to provide a better financial future for themselves as well as their families! Thank you for your interest in Women Do Everything! We look forward to working with you!
To build a community and platform that fosters support for women in male-dominated industries to help them strive despite the many adversities.
