    Kendall Ansell from Belle Construction joins DirtStories as a guest in this episode. She shares her story of starting an all-female construction company and the changes she’s seen for women in construction over the years.

From the daughter of a contractor to a female leader and trailblazer for women in the industry, Kendall has a number of stories to share of how she experienced small forms of sexism while working in the industry and starting her business. Her passion for challenging these stereotypes and helping women to view construction as a great career opportunity is contagious.
