  • Creative soul expressed through event design, management, and planning.

AWC Focus:

I heard about AWC by searching local communication groups. Through this organization I hope to stay current in my communication skills (specifically writing, grammar, and strategic communications), career mentorship, and simply connecting with other like-minded women. I would like to be involved by joining a marketing, event planning, program, and/or membership committee. I also hope to find the best way to publish two children’s books I authored.
