During each month of 2011, the Women’s Business Network will feature a Utah Valley businesswoman who has demonstrated business excellence in areas such as leadership, community contribution, and innovation. By identifying contributors from our community, we hope to learn from and network with other successful women as well as acknowledge success! WBN’s past chair, Cynthia Gambill of Remedez, will be interviewing and introducing us to these outstanding women.
Tresa Ahlin, owner and operator of the Spanish Fork-based boutique Dirty Jo Punsters, recognizes the importance of community involvement. A business owner since 1990, Ahlin has been actively engaged in community service. She spent eight years on the Board of the Spanish Fork/Salem Area Chamber of Commerce and served as Spanish Fork/Salem Area Chamber of Commerce President in 1999. She also co-founded Women Working for Women, a community-oriented organization that raises money for local charities. Currently, she is on the Spanish Fork City Downtown Committee, working hand-in-hand with city planners to organize events and increase shopping interest in downtown Spanish Fork.
Ahlin has four beautiful daughters and is also blessed with four grandchildren. In her spare time, she is constantly searching for the perfect cup of coffee. Ahlin enjoys making people laugh and meeting new friends. Consistent with her personal interests, her favorite part of owning and operating her own business are the friendships that are created along the way. Ahlin looks forward to watching the Utah Valley community grow together and continuing to support Spanish Fork’s local businesses.
