CEO of award-winning design & remodeling firm was highlighted for her leadership and entrepreneurial spirit despite overcoming the odds of an unconventional childhood.



Mina Fies, Founder and CEO of Synergy Design & Construction, a design-build firm located in Reston, VA, was interviewed by Susan Rocco of Women to Watch™ Media. Susan is known for interviewing powerful women leaders who have a story to tell and that help educate and inspire women to try and find their own passion and purpose in life.

“I am extremely honored and humbled to be featured by Women to Watch Media! If sharing my own obstacles can somehow inspire others to overcome theirs, I know I am doing my part.” said Mina Fies, CEO of Synergy Design & Construction. “I was happy to share my passion around creating safe spaces for others and believe our homes are the foundation of our lives and allow us all to make the difference we’re here to make.”

Mina will be presenting a paper on this very subject at the International Society for the Psychoanalytic Study of Organizations (ISPSO)’s Annual Meeting in Cophenhagen July 3rd – 9th, 2017. The theme of the symposium is that “Spaces, places, and rooms affect us deeply” and are asking questions like: “why are some rooms better suited to their purpose, than others? Why do some places make us feel lonely and scared, while others make us feel home away from home…?”

Women to Watch Media chose Mina because she is asking these very same questions.

“My interview with Mina Fies was a validation of my views that our surroundings play a significant role in our well being” said Susan Rocco Founder and Host of Women to Watch™ Media “When we can create a space that speaks to our heart, we gain clarity, focus and peace…. which ultimately leads to both personal and professional success!”
