The brainchild of our founder

Rebeka Morgan

Rebeka is a proud mamma of 7 children, two older ones in their 20’s and then 4 under 10! Having time and quality experiences with them is so important and each child is individually quirky and amazing in their own way. Family is 100% Rebeka’s why and also her hardest challenge to date! Renovating and building has allowed Rebeka the time to take kids to their many different appointments each week, to drop them to school and pick them up. This time is so finite and so precious – she is grateful to have found a path that allows her to balance family life with a fulfilling career.

From the shop floor to the premier coaching business for women who are building their own properties and developing for profit.

Falling in love

with building

At a young age, Rebeka bounced between Architecture and Construction Management at university, working in roles such as builders side tender assistant, Client side Quantity Surveyor and then Project Manager, she finished up as General Manager of a Commercial Construction company.

Having achieved the role she always thought she wanted, she realised there was no place at that time for women who wanted to work hard and also be present for her children; an issue that is widespread in the construction industry.

When her boss came to her and told her she “needed a house husband” she knew there was no future in her role. She resigned to work on a business she was running on the side. A business that helped schools, childcares and charities fundraise. Driven by her passion for the construction industry, she also started to build a residential building business, dabble with renovating for profit and share her knowledge tutoring for a university.

Born Out Of Rebellion

Registering as a Residential Builder, backed with a degree in Construction Management and a Masters in Entrepreneurship and Innovation, she sold the fundraising business, but within a mere few weeks of finalising that sale, and a few people asking her if she ‘did the books for her husband’ she hatched a plan for BuildHer Collective. It looked nothing like it does now in those first thoughts, but Rebeka and her then business partner, Kribashini, just wanted to help women build and renovate and enjoy the process.

with the right tools,

Everyone can build.

If you ask Rebeka, she’ll tell you “It is a privilege to be able to renovate and build a home for your family” despite how stressful it can appear when you start. Yet so many women were having issues and coming to Rebeka to ‘fix’ what had already become a tumultuous situation and relationship between the women she was speaking with and their builders!
Many times she could see where the issues had started, really early in the piece and it was this lack of knowledge of the process and understanding that could have saved these women from such stressful and horrible experiences.

Build It And

They Will Come

BuildHer Collective started helping women build and renovate their own homes, but after a while countless members of the community asked Rebeka if she could show them how to renovate for profit. Thus the DevelopHer’s group was started! The DevelopHer’s Masterclass and Inner Circle is exactly what Rebeka wanted when she was starting her journey. There were so many mistakes and expensive learnings and so much time figuring out the secrets behind the builders and developers systems!

Cracking that code and being able to share everything she learned is what drives Rebeka to this day and is the essence of BuildHer Collective and the work that we do.
