Tessa Pugh, Owner

“I fully believe in the power of investing in the next generation of female leaders. The inspiHER Girls Leadership Retreat will equip young women with the tools they need to overcome obstacles, pursue their passions, believe in themselves, prioritize their physical/menta/emotional well-being, and make a positive impact in their communities and beyond. I am excited and honored to support the mission of creating an inspiring environment that encourages young women to reach their full potential.”
Dr. Lexxi Roush, Owner/Chiropractor
Whole Health Chiropractic
"The most important thing we can do for our youth is help them build confidence and set goals for themselves. There will always be someone who will say you can’t, you just have to prove them wrong!"
Paula Williams, Founder
French City Society
"Youth of today live in a culture of comparison. Especially with social media full of highlight reels. I believe that girls of all ages need to be equipped with confidence, so they are brave to dream big and define their path as they go out into the world and do what needs to be done to achieve their goals beyond their wildest imagination. I am honored to stand alongside so many strong and confident women in Gallia County who believe in the importance of uplifting our youth and empowering them with lifelong tools to take back to their homes, schools, and community thus building leaders not followers. "
Joshua Bodimer, Principle Broker
Wiseman Real Estate
“ Wiseman Real Estate’s foundation is based on one word, support. When I saw the announcement on social media about inspiHER, I read more about how it will involve leadership training, making goals, and inspiring girls 9 -13 to “dream big”. One of the pillars of our foundation of support is support of our community, we feel that inspiHER will be very positively impactful to our community and we are proud to #support their mission and vision.”
" Being able to listen to these women and hear their advice has been very inspiring and uplifting. Your support has helped fuel young minds for a postive future."
