from the

PUBLISHER

Launched in 2017, The KNOW Book + Tribe began as a way to bring more attention to dynamic women doing remarkable things in the Phoenix metro. We knew there were an outstanding number of women impacting the community and making big strides in their industries. Our goal was to get those women out from behind their computer screens and into the public eye. Thus, we created the KNOW Book, a carefully curated publication that would feature vision-led women in a glamorous and authentic style. As the momentum grew and we recognized the need for more, we launched our Tribe around the women featured in our KNOW Book. Our mix & mingles soon ensued and we witnessed incredible things happening. We saw our women doing business with each other, creating friendships, supporting each other, collaborating on projects together, and so much more. What started as a fun project to spotlight women, has turned into a full-blown movement. The KNOW Book + Tribe has expanded beyond its birthplace of Phoenix, Arizona; its aim is to launch in every major city across the United States and Canada.

AMBASSADOR

Beautiful women of Raleigh, You inspire me! Getting to know and hearing your incredible stories these last few months has been unbelievable! You TRULY are the leading ladies in the Triangle, but not just for what you do in business or community but for what is in your hearts. You have been open. You have been humble. You have been kind. You have taken time out of your overbooked schedules, balancing work and life, because you share the same beliefs of KNOW. We all came together by nomination and notable achievements. Professionally and personally we may have different views, but choose to unite despite diversities as women, leaders, mothers, and friends. We have had successes, overcame challenges, and most importantly know the power of coming together to lift and rise. I find it only fitting that Raleigh is called the “City of Oaks� as I continue to learn more about your stories as your strength resembles this powerful timber. I have dedicated my professional career to celebrating and empowering women. Whether that be through statement photography, community involvement, or my latest rooted commitment as your KNOW leader. I look forward to standing tall like the Oaks this year with you and representing the city of Raleigh TOGETHER, planting roots, and helping one another be fruitful.

As Regional Director of Amazing Lash Studio, a premier lash extension bar with 6 locations in North Carolina, Christine serves as client liaison, mentor, and business manager to a company region with an annual revenue of more than $4.5 million.

NON-PROFIT

KRISTY BLASEY 100 WOMEN WHO GIVE A HOOT | BIRTHDAYPAK Kristy Blasey is the co-founder of Women Who Give a Hoot. Launched in 2016, “Hoot” as it’s lovingly called by its members, was born out of the desire to increase the impact of local charity donations through collective giving. For one hour each quarter, members meet and hear from three local non-profits. At the end of the meeting, members vote on which non-profit should receive the collective donation. The non-profit with the most votes receives $100 from each member...talk about IMPACT! Hoot has raised more than $250,000 for the local non-profit community and is more than 200 members strong – perfect for women with a big heart, but little time. When not planning and handling logistics for Hoot meetings, Kristy is dishing up birthday surprises for the women of the Triangle with her business BirthdayPak. BirthdayPak celebrates women’s birthdays with gift cards to local restaurants, spas, boutiques, and more. Look for BirthdayPak in the mail on your next birthday! PHOTO CREDIT: ROSE TRAIL IMAGES
