Founder and Director Susan Ackerman is an author, speaker, motivator and entrepreneur who holds bachelor’s degrees in psychology and creative writing, with a minor in women’s studies from Chatham University in Pittsburgh, Pa.

“To have the opportunity to provide such a valuable resource to women entrepreneurs in our community is a dream come true. I’ve witnessed over my years as an entrepreneur the fear that so many women face in starting or building their own businesses, the challenges they encounter and their own personal struggles to continue,” states Ackerman in a release. “To have a place that works on building women in all areas of their lives, watching them grow into the best versions of themselves and providing them with the tools to rise into their own power is both energizing and rewarding.”
