#plugintodevin Show - Devin Thorpe for Congress Guest: Sydne Jacques Issue: I am dedicated to bringing more respect to the good people that build our communities, and to help people realize you do not have to have a college degree to be "successful". I work with these incredibly talented people and I'm annoyed that as a society we look down on them. People need to stop and think that their homes, offices, hospitals, schools, roads, bridges -- everything in their community is built by construction workers and they deserve more respect for the good work they do. AND their are great careers available. Bio: Sydne Jacques is an advocate for “humans in hardhats,” or the belief that tradespeople and craftsmen should be valued and respected. She is a civil engineer turned CEO and consultant. This farm girl from Montana built an award-winning company with worldwide clients, has trained over 20,000 individuals and has facilitated team-building for more than 350 construction teams. Sydne has a unique ability to motivate individuals to help them reach the “Next Level” of life and leadership. Her company was recently named the 12th top Women Owned business in Utah and she has also been named one of “30 Women to Watch” by Utah Business Magazine. Sydne currently serves on the Board of Directors for the Utah Associated General Contractors, on the National Advisory Committee for the College of Engineering at Brigham Young University and on the board of directors for the non-profit Working Moms Connections. Sydne loves sports and is proud of two gold medals earned in basketball in the senior Olympics. She and her husband love to travel and she is the proud mother of four awesome kids.
