Vice-President's Pipeline

Hello,

It is May and summer is upon us. I want to take a few moments and say thank you all for hanging with us as we have navigated the changes from being in person to virtual and then to hybrid sessions. It is our intention to begin in person meetings again starting with our May speaker. We have two big events planned for May that we are hoping you can join us for. Our Civic Committee and the Board of Directors have been working on the Habitat for Humanity Women Build since last year and we are excited to get out there May 1st. Thank you to all our sponsors and those who donated to make this event possible.  

Here are some things coming up!

  • May 1st - Habitat for Humanity Women Build
  • May 6th - Amber Hurdle will present during an afternoon meeting. Her book will be given to all who register and attend. This will be a hybird event so be on the look out for the event. 
  • June 10th- In person membership meeting. More details coming soon! 

Region Forum was at the end of April and it was a great event. We had four people attend to represent Nashville. We heard some great speakers and learned great lessons about inspiring cooperation, money management for women, and perseverance.  

Finally, as your incoming president I am starting to gather ideas for things to do over the next year. If you have any suggestions, ideas, people you would like to hear speak, topics you would like us to do an event around, or any other comments please let me know. After the new board is voted in we will begin our strategic planning and this information will be valuable as we setup our new year. 

Thank you for all you do to make this chapter a success! 

Ashley Spence, Vice-President

Member Spotlight

Name:  Michelle Fox

Company & your title: Haven Builders, LLC Director of Marketing & Business Development

Hometown: Edmonton, Alberta, Canada

Birthday Month/Day:  April 12

What do you love most about the construction industry and how long have you been in it?  As a kid, I started building doll houses and “forts” out of anything I could get my hands on, I migrated into working on stage sets and design. I sold my design build company to move to Nashville in 2003, to be with the man I married in 2004. My favorite part of construction is watching something new be created. I love seeing a idea grow and how all the pieces, parts and people all collaborate to make it happen.

What is your favorite thing to do in your free time? I love being a nana, hanging with my rescue babies (right now 3 cats and 2 dogs), riding my motorcycle, reading just about anything, volunteering with Veterans causes, homeless issues and anything to do with animals.

How did you hear about NAWIC and why did you join?  I found a link to the website during a search for something totally unrelated and curiosity had me clicking and signing up for a meeting. I attended meetings and events for almost 2 years before I finally joined, I just love the support and comradery of the women that I’ve met.

What advice would you give a new member or prospective member? Join, you’ll meet women who’ll support and inspire you!
