Today’s spotlight: Audrey Monell

Title: President, Forrest Anderson Plumbing, Heating and Air Conditioning

Background: Monell breaks boundaries in her male-dominated industry, where she has grown the company and implemented new efficiencies, while enforcing strict ethical standards recognized by the Better Business Bureau.

Essence of leadership: “Every good leader needs humility. Knowing when I am wrong, admitting my mistakes and learning from them is the key to growth. I would not be successful if not for everyone around me, so I make sure they know how much I’ve learned from them and appreciate them.”

Surprising fact: “When I was 16, I became the women’s world champion of cowboy mounted shooting.”
