Paige Hemmis is a member of the design team on ABC's "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition."

Paige Hemmis is also one of the celebrity contestants on ABC's "The Superstars." Hemmis teams up with skiing champion Bode Miller for the sports competition.

Hemmis may be an unlikely vision on a construction site. The statuesque beauty, however, is an accomplished carpenter, skilled homebuilder, successful businesswoman and author. Hemmis is self-taught, with no formal carpentry training, and is rarely to be found without a tool of some kind in her purse. This dynamic and confident Wisconsin-born entrepreneur founded a successful real estate company and a wedding planning business before joining the design team of ABC's Emmy-winning "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition."

In 2005 Hemmis founded Tuff Chix, Inc., dedicated to performance work wear for women that is durable and fashionable. Tuff Chix is inspired by Hemmis' own hard work and determination and features such items as pink work gloves, boots and tool belts. In December 2006, Hemmis released her first book, "The Tuff Chix Guide to Easy Home Improvement," to inspire other women to tackle home improvement projects with confidence.

Hemmis grew up in Chatsworth, California, with aspirations ranging from teacher to doctor to world traveler to wedding planner to homebuilder. During college Hemmis taught first-aid and CPR to University of California, Santa Barbara students, then became a licensed Emergency Medical Technician. After graduating with Theology and Psychology degrees from UCSB and realizing the medical profession was not for her, Hemmis took an International Sales Manager position taking her to Hong Kong.

Imbued with an entrepreneurial spirit, Hemmis pursued substitute teaching while developing contacts in the wedding industry. Hemmis launched Simply Elegant Weddings in 2001 and the natural progression of helping couples led to helping families secure their first homes. Without deep pockets, Hemmis used her tenacity and resourcefulness to learn all aspects of construction, including drywall, cabinetry, electrical and plumbing. Hemmis auditioned for "Monster House" to win tools so that she could fix more homes, and appeared on its Christmas episode, where she was discovered by the producers of "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition."

Hemmis considers her role on "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" a blessing and feels fortunate to make her living helping others. In between extreme makeovers, Hemmis lends her time and celebrity as a spokesperson for Habitat for Humanity and other charities. She will continue her mission of giving through her Tuff Chix products & foundation, dedicating support to her favorite charities.
