But Becky Paneitz, founder of the Women’s Empowerment Center in Rogers, has been aware of these issues for many years. She is currently working diligently through her company, Inseitz Group, to provide women-focused training in Northwest Arkansas.  Helping Women Evolve Their Potential and Discover Confidence to Succeed hile growing up, Becky was assured by both her mother and father that she could do anything she wanted to do. Her parents were in education – her father a school administrator and her mother a teacher. Becky spent most of her formative years in McGehee, a small town in south Arkansas. “I was never taught that, as a woman, I couldn’t do certain things,” she says. “I felt I could do whatever I wanted to do.” Becky graduated high school in 1970 and made plans to attend the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville on a music scholarship. “But, as life often happens, a young man came along and I followed him to the University of Arkansas at Monticello instead and majored in office administration,” she says. Although she and the young man married, she maintained her drive and completed her education. She earned her degree and moved to Little Rock with her husband. “My first job was as a legal secretary,” Becky says. “I was married, had school loans and was making $425 a month with a college degree.” It certainly wasn’t what Becky had expected. She then had her first child and decided to go to part-time work and teach piano lessons from her home. Becky soon realized the challenges of paying for childcare and finding a work/life balance. She knew she was going to have to do something more with her education to be able to make ends meet. W
