About the Author
Mollie Elkman spent her childhood surrounded by home builders, yet it wasn't until she joined the industry herself that she recognized how often she was the only woman in the room. She quickly discovered that just as she was brought into a family business by her father, so were the majority of other women she was meeting throughout all areas of home building.Over her career, Mollie formed friendships with people who proved that not only are jobs genderless, but everyone benefits from a workforce that embraces diversity and inclusion. One of those friends shared an exciting and ambitious project they were involved in...an all-woman-built home. As Mollie learned about each of the women involved in the project, she could feel herself becoming more and more inspired by their stories. She hopes that young readers everywhere will feel inspired too.
