Contractor, TV Host and Marketer
Kayleen McCabe’s passion for the trades takes her from garages to global summits. A Contractor and industry ambassador, she’s a sought-after speaker on trade education, career choices, America’s labor shortage, and women as skilled laborers – all marked by her trademark playful-ness, candor, and informed wit. The longtime host of DIY Network’s Rescue Renovation, Kayleen is committed to soliciting respect and visibility for Craft Professionals and the careers associated with them. Her nonproft, The McCabe Foundation, tightens America’s skills gap by encouraging young men, women and Veterans to consider careers in this undervalued, unflled sector.
Kayleen is a familiar face at industry events and in schools across the nation, and partners exclusively with respected partners including SkillsUSA, NAWIC, ACTE, and NCCER. When she’s not knocking down stereotypes or walls, Kayleen caters to a wide array of clients on custom construction projects, and enjoys as much time as possible in her home state of Colorado.
