Rowena Dziubla, or “Ro” to those who know her, is not your everyday business coach. With an Associates Degree in Engineering Science and a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Interior Design, she knows what it takes to work in the field she coaches. She brings more than two decades of experience in Project Management, Office Management, and Personal Fitness Training, and CrossFit training to her two businesses.
Ro owns and operates WODeration, a small business coaching company focused on finding solutions for women in the architectural, engineering, and construction industries. As a member and former committee member of the National Association of Women in Construction, Ro is uniquely qualified to not only speak for women in the AEC industry but also fight alongside them. Her work in this industry has extended beyond coaching as she spoke out against ubiquitous sexism in the workplace during the #metoo movement.
Her work in Personal Training and CrossFit may seem like a departure from her work in AEC, but as anyone who has met her will tell you, Ro focuses her training on the whole person. After surviving a battle with fibrosarcoma which claimed her left kidney, spleen, and a part of her pancreas, Ro realized the massive impact communities like CrossFit have on the health of individuals. This put her on the path to eventually own the Get Fit EGV gym where she inspires members through her work as a head coach.
She is a firm believer in community, diversity, and authenticity. Ro works to strengthen not just the bodies of those at her gym, but their self-esteem and confidence in all aspects of their lives. Ro works every day to advocate for women in the AEC industry, her gym members, and training team. She looks forward to touching the lives of many more people in the future.
