While we love our big boss ladies in town, like Highland Brewing’s Leah Wong Ashburn and the Bob Moog Foundation’s Michelle Moog-Koussa, today we’re highlighting a few lesser-known Asheville women working in male-dominated fields that you, our dear readers, told us about.

Masonry| Need some stonework done? Ancient Stoneworks, owned by Jill Haynie, creates everything from steps and landscape walls to benches and birdbaths.

Tile | With over a decade of experience, mixed media artist and tile setter Liz Roberts creates custom designs for both commercial + residential exterior and interior spaces. You’ve probably noticed her work inside The Hop on Merrimon.

General contracting and design| Do you need renovations made to your home? Thanks to general contractor + professional designer Sally Spiegel, owner of Sally House to Home, Joanna Gaines can step aside.

Paint | Does your house need a fresh coat of paint? You’re in luck. Hit up Bradley Painting Company, which offers residential + commercial painting and wall covering services.

Tech | Find coders, developers, designers, and more at Asheville Women in Tech, a group for women working in tech fields who range from novices to professionals. Follow them for deets on their next meeting.

Exotic cars| In the market for a special new whip? Avid car enthusiast + owner of Weaverville’s boutique car dealership Rare Exotic Vehicles Lara Vernon can help. Specializing in pre-owned vintage and modern collector cars, Lara also offers guided tours and event rentals.
