Updated: Jul 22, 2022

When people know you get things done and they trust you, they will do business with you. Target people that trust you. What will make you different in the marketplace is moving from a traditional vendor to becoming a trusted advisor. - Rebecca Contreras

Rebecca Contreras is currently the President & CEO of AvantGarde LLC (AG), a consulting firm she cofounded in 2011 as the majority owner. AG has grown to over 110 employees spread across TX, DC, VA, MD, Philadelphia, Kansas City, Florida, and a few other states. AG’s Offices are in the Austin and Washington DC area with clients in 26 different government agencies. Rebecca is also the author of Lost Girl – From the Hood to the White House to Millionaire Entrepreneur, which recounts her journey from becoming a welfare-dependent teenage mother to advising a sitting president, to driving a successful 100-person company. Rebecca spent nearly twelve years with the George W. Bush, first in Texas as his Director of HR then in DC in the White House as a Commissioned Officer supporting the Presidential transition. Far more than a rags-to-riches story, Lost Girl presents Contreras’s self-reflection of how she first survived in El Paso and endured the hardships of the life she was born into, and later overcame obstacle after obstacle through self-determination, faith, and a few helping hands. - from
