Mollie Elkman:
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. Over her career, she met people who proved that not only are jobs genderless, but everyone benefits from a workforce that embraces diversity and inclusion. When the ambitious project of an all-woman-built home was shared with her, Mollie could feel herself becoming more and more inspired by the stories of the women involved. She is excited to share that feeling with young readers and their parents.|||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.
