North Dallas September Luncheon

Erica Molett

Erica Molett.JPG

As Erica navigates her personal and professional journey, she asks God daily for one thing: "Lord, please use me as a tool to build your kingdom, leading me to the people, communities, and businesses that I can serve in your name." Erica's winding road to professional "success" is evidence that God can use you in the most unexpected and amazing ways, when you just say "yes" to every assignment he presents. 

Erica spent the first 10 years of her career in the financial industry, including investments, commercial banking, and loan underwriting. In 2007, God transitioned her into the public sector, where she led the Ex-Offender Reentry Division for the City of Dallas, for nearly 5 years. In 2013, she blended her private sector and public sector experience, as the Business Retention & Expansion Manager, for the Cedar Hill Economic Development Corporation. There she supported the needs of Cedar Hill businesses, ranging from importing and exporting, commercial real estate, workforce, organizational structure, to accessing capital, and startup strategies. During this time, Erica found a true calling for building collaborations amongst non-profits, corporations, educators, community leaders, and government entities. Erica loves exploring new cultures, and has been called upon by the World Affairs Council to host international delegates from nearly 10 different countries. Erica recently stepped out on faith and began her own consulting firm, Expansion Solutions Consulting Services, to broaden her impact in the areas of workforce development, leadership development training, and economic development.

Erica also owns another company, that Conscious Couture Luxury Resale Events was birthed out of the Molett family's own tumultuous journey through the recession and a televised financial bootcamp, a small yard sale idea, and a few angels on earth. Conscious Couture combines fashion and philanthropy, to support the fight against human trafficking, showcase emerging designers, and create global girl power. Attendees shop the personal closets of celebrities and local style influencers, sample sales from designer runway collections, and rare finds from couture consignment boutiques. Most importantly, they leave inspired by the empowering Style Boss panels, with women who have succeeded in areas like fashion, philanthropy, sports, business, and journalism. 

You won't want to miss hearing Erica's story!

North Dallas June Luncheon

Jensy Maier

Jensy earned her undergraduate and graduate degrees in accounting from The University of Texas at Austin (Hook 'Em!).  Her professional journey has been a bit non-traditional as she spent time in business risk consulting and internal audit when she stumbled upon a very interesting career – forensic accounting and fraud investigations – and loves it!  Jensy is a Certified Public Accountant (CPA), Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE) and Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialist (CAMS) and is currently the Director of Internal Fraud for Capital One’s Financial Services division in Plano. 

One of Jensy’s passions is teaching and she’s had the opportunity to be both an adjunct and full-time professor at UT Dallas (Go Comets!).  She also has a passion for equipping and empowering young women (which is why she LOVES Polished!).  She has been a formal (and informal) mentor to many, led book clubs and topical studies, and spoken on panels/events for a college campus ministry that she and her husband are avid supporters of.

Jensy is a native Texan, born and raised in Fort Worth - while she has never owned a pair of cowboy boots, she has always been an avid Dallas Cowboys fan! Jensy and her hubby of nine years, Chris, live in Frisco and have two little people they adore – Joshua and Hannah.  She’s obsessed with a few food network shows, finding a steal of a deal (on anything!) and loves to entertain and host her family and friends.
