“Essential Things Every Woman Should Know About Her Car.”
Hosted By: Linda & Sara Knaack

We look forward to networking with everyone!!
Knaack Of It Automotive: 3703 Cleveland Avenue, Wellington

Linda Knaack married into the automotive world 23 years ago and her daughter Sara was born into it 21 years ago. The pair have spent countless hours in the garage working alongside John (husband and father), an ASE L1 Advanced Level Specialist and Master Certified Technician, to repair and maintain their personal fleet of vehicles. In mid-October 2017 the family was presented with the opportunity to open their own automotive repair facility in their hometown of Wellington, CO, and leaped at the chance. Approximately two weeks later on November 1st, 2017 the doors were opened, and business was up and running. Linda and Sara immediately took on the role of service advisors and climbed the steep learning curve of estimating and part sourcing for nearly every type of vehicle on the road.

As the mother and daughter duo delved deeper into their business an awareness arose that many people are leery to go into an automotive repair facility and are more so to ask questions. We understand that vehicles are personal and are ultimately a means of freedom and livelihood for many.

Our mission is to help our customers understand their vehicles better and to break down the barriers that exist for women in male-dominated fields. In a desire to help our local community and loyal customers, we seek to educate and advise what to look for when you go to a mechanic, tire shop, and/or oil change facility. We also want to share what questions people should ask and how to watch out for the Service Advisor Bully.

”Come learn about HR updates for Colorado Employers for 2021;
Newest CO wage and hour rules, Paid Sick requirements, and more!”

Guest Speaker: Tina Todd, PHRca, SHRM-CP, CHRS simplyHR & Define the Line Co-Founder

I’m a true HR nerd and love digging into wage and hour rules, working with teams, and helping the incredible organizations in our community understand all of the fun (and sometimes tricky) aspects of HR. In addition to Co-Founding simplyHR in 2016, I also co-created Define the Line, a workplace harassment training in the form of a comic book to educate, train, and empower individuals and workplaces to speak and act against harassment to create safe workplaces. My professional experience has ranged from restaurants and retailers to a non-profit organization to large corporations. My functions ranged from staffing to culture and compliance to a variety of other functions including forecasting, budgeting, operations, and employee relations.

Through that, I realized there is a huge need for assistance for businesses navigating all of the complexities of HR laws so that they can focus on their areas of expertise, and still be compliant in HR. In addition to working with clients directly through simplyHR, I am an HR Consultant for the Larimer SBDC. I feel extremely fortunate to work with so many admirable managers and executive directors and to be doing what I love. Outside of work, I enjoy running, skiing, getting outside any way possible, and spending time with my husband and twin boys.
