“Woman on the Move . . . Breaking Barriers” is the theme of the 35th annual USU Eastern Women’s Conference set for Friday, April 11, in the Jennifer Leavitt Student Center from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Organizing expert, Vicki Winterton, opens the conference with her morning keynote address titled “Clutter Busting Secrets Used by Professional Organizers.” The first woman Speaker of the House of Representatives, Becky Lockhart concludes the conference as a woman on the move . . . breaking barriers.

She is passionate about helping her client’s tame cluttered spaces and papers. Over the past eight years, she helped hundreds of clients take on a room filled with nothing but chaos and bring about order and peace. She is so sure she can make a lasting difference in her client’s lives that she guarantees her work. She is a guest expert on KSL Morning News and Studio 5 TV, Salt Lake Tribune’s SPACES magazine, feature writer for Daily Herald newspaper and SAVVY Shopper Website’s organizing expert.
Becky Lockhart is the first woman Speaker of the Utah House of Representatives. An eight-term representative from Provo, she is in her second term as Speaker of the House. The issues she has overseen include topics like immigration reform, alcohol policy, education funding, transportation planning and once-in-a-decade redistricting.
