Hacia motivates audiences to triumph over life’s challenges through her Courage Coaching and Speaking. As Founding Director of Empowered Women in Trades, she’s revolutionizing how trade-based industries in Australia attract, support, and retain female careers within skilled trades. Hacia’s transformational ideology was developed after she sustained crushing injuries in a life-threatening equestrian accident. Being told she may never walk again in any meaningful way, she realized that success is a relative concept, which must constantly be redefined, and that advancement in life is primarily based on one’s ability to implement incremental goals, which, when achieved, aggregate into forward-propelling milestones.
