#plugintodevin Show - Devin Thorpe for Congress

Guest: Sydne Jacques
Issue: I am dedicated to bringing more respect to the good people that build our communities, and to help people realize you do not have to have a college degree to be "successful". I work with these incredibly talented people and I'm annoyed that as a society we look down on them. People need to stop and think that their homes, offices, hospitals, schools, roads, bridges -- everything in their community is built by construction workers and they deserve more respect for the good work they do. AND their are great careers available.

Bio: Sydne Jacques is an advocate for “humans in hardhats,” or the belief that tradespeople and craftsmen should be valued and respected. She is a civil engineer turned CEO and consultant. This farm girl from Montana built an award-winning company with worldwide clients, has trained over 20,000 individuals and has facilitated team-building for more than 350 construction teams. Sydne has a unique ability to motivate individuals to help them reach the “Next Level” of life and leadership. Her company was recently named the 12th top Women Owned business in Utah and she has also been named one of “30 Women to Watch” by Utah Business Magazine. Sydne currently serves on the Board of Directors for the Utah Associated General Contractors, on the National Advisory Committee for the College of Engineering at Brigham Young University and on the board of directors for the non-profit Working Moms Connections. Sydne loves sports and is proud of two gold medals earned in basketball in the senior Olympics. She and her husband love to travel and she is the proud mother of four awesome kids.

#plugintodevin Show - Devin Thorpe for Congress

Guest: Katy Owens
Office Sought: Utah Senate District 19
Issue: Access to healthcare that families can afford has been an issue the community for a long time, but I think the events of this year have brought into focus just how important this is. I have a younger brother who was born with a number of heart and lung problems, and spent a lot of my childhood in the waiting rooms of children's hospitals. Now I've experienced something similar with my own son and some health chronic problems he's had in his young life. My husband and I, and my parents before us, had to make decisions about where we lived and where we worked to make sure we have the health insurance to keep our kids healthy. I think a lot of things are in flux right now because it remains to be seen how our system handles the COVID-19 crisis in the comings months, but I think we need to focus more on public health than we currently do - taking a more community-based view of health.

Bio: Katy Owens is running for Utah Senate District 19, which includes parts of Weber, Summit, and Morgan Counties. She is running to create a more responsive and representative legislature. Katy lives in Summit County with her husband and two kids. She has a bachelor’s degree in international relations, a master’s degree in political science, and has been in the field of election administration for the last ten years. She has worked for the Denver Elections Division, the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL), The Carter Center's Democracy Program, and now provides consulting services on election administration policy and management. Katy wants to see a better future for Utah's kids, which includes affordable healthcare, quality education, clean air and a meaningful voice in the legislature.

BYU Student Leader on Measuring Social Impact - #plugintodevin

#plugintodevin Show - Devin Thorpe for Congress

Guest: Alicia Gettys
Issue: Effectively solving social problems and measuring impact. Unfortunately "Charities do sometimes faileth." I have volunteered for organizations and left thinking, "Did that really help?" or even worse, "Did my good intention, leave people off worse than they started?" Tools exist to prevent good intentions from going awry. I'd like to empower the world with these tools. I dream of a world in which we put all non-profits out of business due to the lack of social problems.

Bio: Alicia Gettys is the Managing Director for the BYU Ballard Center for Social Impact—the largest university run social innovation center. Through the Center, each year thousands of students learn industry best practices and skills to solve social problems.
