Not afraid to get her hands dirty, she brings an unbridled passion for ideas that move business forward.

Filomena May |  Financial Advisor, Filo Financial Solutions of Raymond James Ltd. Filomena began her financial career at just 24 years of age. She went on to start her own company within a male-dominated industry and has overcome many obstacles to beat the odds where her average colleague is a 55-year-old male.

Lara Murphy |  Co-Founder, Ryan Murphy Construction.  Lara Murphy started her first construction business in New Brunswick at 16, advertising by handing out flyers door to door. She remembers being proud that she could fit two lawn mowers in the trunk of her car!  During her studies at Mount Allison University, she had the opportunity to run several additional businesses within the construction industry. Travelling internationally while playing soccer magnified her love of architecture, and Lara formed Fresco, a heritage restoration firm.  After moving to Alberta, her entrepreneurial spirit again led her to launch her own construction company, All Seasons.  It was during this time, in 2007, that Karen and Lara met on a commercial work site and within a year, Ryan Murphy Construction was born.

Charlene SanJenko |  Moderator, Founder & CEO, PowHERhouse Media Group

Background |  PowHERhouse Media uses media to move women forward, faster!

In 2000, Charlene SanJenko left her career as a National Marketing Manager for a privately-held national investment firm and set out to build a brokerage house of her own – and Media House – a powerful catalyst that fuels efforts, places muscle behind missions, and provides profile, podiums and a nation-wide platform for Canadian women.

You see, women are up to incredible, EPIC work in this world.

We deeply crave to be seen, known, and heard… acknowledged, recognized and celebrated for the LEADERS we are because of WHO we are and how we SHOW UP in our everyday lives.

Who is mainstream media celebrating?  We know we can do better – and we are!

We’re redefining women’s media with a model that is multi-dimensional, interactive, inclusive, and fully integrated – by women, for women, about women.

PowHERhouse Media provides what’s been missing up to this point – a VOICE; VISIBILITY for the ‘everyday woman’ who quietly and now not-so-quietly is changing this world.  We demonstrate what is possible and inspire others to Find Their Voice and Take Their Lead, creating a powHERful ripple of IMPACT.

We are building a stronger nation, one powHERful woman at a time.
