Women Empowerment Panel

Tami Muhlenbruck - Owner of Maria Vincent Online Boutique- As a Mom of twins, Cali Maria and Anthony Vincent (yes, the boutique is named after them because they are my pride and joy!), I am grounded in Midwest roots. I have learned that successes in life come from hard work. But you also have to be kind, be honest, be present, be your best and always have fun in the moment! These are our values at MARIA VINCENT. Our mission is simple: to help women feel confident in their fashion style by providing a simple shopping experience.

Laura Reed- Owner of AR Workshop Ankeny- AR Workshop Ankeny is locally owned by a pair of ambitious DIY’ers, Jeff & Laura Reed. You can often find Jeff with a power tool in hand, whether that is for work or play. He stays busy with Laura’s requests for custom pieces of décor and furniture for their home. Laura’s love for crafting and DIY combined with Jeff’s construction knowledge and desire to one day own a business made AR Workshop a perfect fit for them.

Crystal Blin-Senior Director KEEP Collective- Chai tea, lipstick, cows and arm parties are the four words that describe Crystal Blin the best. After spending 10 years working in corporate marketing Crystal stumbled into the world of social selling. Today she leads a team of more than 350 women, helping them find their why, develop their passion and learning what it means to have a side hustle. Crystal and her husband, Jon, live in Iowa on their farm where she is surround by her other love Hereford cattle. You can find her on all social media channels as CrystalCattle.
