About Us

GIRL-POWERED

THE WOMEN BEHIND THE NON-PROFIT.

Girl with Grit was officially started by Blythe Zemel in December of 2020 after recognizing a need for better access to equipment and educational opportunities for girls in her community.

First joining our board was Staci Andrews, Retired Navy and Entrepreneur.

In January, Ashley Robertson, Shop Assistant at ToyMakerz headed down to help pull an engine from our 1934 Chevy Truck and at that time joined our board.  ToyMakerz can be seen on History Channel.

In April, Briana Hunh, currently fabricator at Texas Hot Rods and West Coast Choppers, came down from Minnesota in April to introduce her work with youth outreach and the trades for Big Ideas. Briana was also on Bitchhin’ Bootcamp and Monster Garage. Now located in Austin, Briana has become pivotal to our program.

We are also assisted by other strong women in our Board. Brooke Dorman, a speech pathologist and director of one of the largest homeschool communities in our area. Janie Sellers assists with STEM and is owner of STEMtastic. Other support comes from Lauren Taylor, with her Master’s in Education and years of classroom experience and Marsha Tucker, a retired Executive Director of a large nonprofit educational speaker platform in Houston TX.

Currently, Girl with Grit has a Makerspace, Classes, and Workshops that are open to everyone in the community. Girl with Grit Program runs an introduction of skills to girls in that space.
