Rebecca Harrell Tickell has dedicated her career to the advancement of women in green businesses. She specializes in providing women with tactics in order to profit from their passion for helping their communities and the planet. She has worked with hundreds of women who, collectively, comprise a substantial portion of the “green movement” - from CEO’s of major nonprofit organizations, to women who are designing new eco-friendly products, and to women who are fundamentally shifting the way corporations think and work within the environment.
Her new book, Hot, Rich & Green!: The Secret Formula Women are Using to Get Rich and Save the Planet, gives a fresh perspective on the role women are playing in reshaping the environmental movement. This book offers profound value to its readers, teaching them the formula to create and financially succeed from businesses in the green space. The lessons in the book come directly from actual successes and failures of women who have lived the simple formulas presented.
Rebecca came to her calling as the “queen of green” through her background as a film producer, musician and a youth coordinator. She produced the Academy Award Shortlisted and Sundance Audience Award Winning, environmentally-themed movie, FUEL. She chairs The Veggie Van Organization, a national nonprofit dedicated to education around sustainable energy. Through her work in the nonprofit sector, she has spoken to and trained over 10,000 teens and teachers throughout Southern California in the art of fundraising and positioning. Rebecca also works closely with highly esteemed organizations such as Jane Goodall’s Roots and Shoots program, the United Nations and the Virgin Group.
Rebecca has extensive experience and success in the entertainment industry, including starring in the classic Christmas movie, Prancer, and NBC’s Third Watch. Rebecca, who grew up in Vermont, currently lives in Venice, CA with her husband, Josh Tickell, and their pug, Mr. Brown.
