I suppose you would call me a pioneer in the energy industry. When natural gas was deregulated in 1984, I recognized an opportunity and took a risk to form a private natural gas marketing company, Stand Energy Corporation. Although I was highly experienced in the energy business, it was unusual for a woman to break into (and survive!) this male-dominated industry. I grew my business by working nonstop and building relationships. That philosophy has sustained me to this day–35 years and a 16-state footprint later. I am pleased to be considered a Woman Who Moves Cincinnati.
