Association; commonality; society; affiliation; sisterhood; inclusion.

We are human beings that all desire to have a sense of belonging.  We are stronger, healthier, and happier when we feel connected to and valued by each other.  We all benefit by the bond of community.

Building community and fostering support within those groups to help each member grow into their best is what keeps me coming back for more!  Here are the communities that I help foster today:

NAWBO National Circle

NAWBO Phoenix

The Phoenix chapter of the National Association of Women Business Owners is one of the most relevant, forward focused, member supportive communities that I have had the honor to serve in.  I served on the board of directors for six years and had the privilege of serving as the President during the 2012/2013 board year. The friendships and professional connections that have resulted from being part of this community have been absolutely priceless to me. The Phoenix chapter is also collaborating with the Tucson and Sedona chapters – so this amazing community continues to grow and flourish! .  Being part of this powerful and supportive organization substantially grew my leadership skills which led me to the incredible opportunity I have today at the national level working with the top 3% of women business owners in our nation.

Girls Rule Foundation

The Girls Rule Foundation is based in Phoenix, AZ, and promotes confidence and teaches leadership skills to girls in middle and high school across the nation. Through five signature programs/events and a downloadable peer-led leadership club, Girls Rule is changing the world by creating more women strong, brilliant and bold women leaders in the next generation. 

The Women’s Enterprise Foundation

The Women’s Enterprise Foundation is non-profit group of women whose focus is the provide scholarships and grants to women business owners to help them succeed. This is a heart-centered group striving to help women-owned businesses grow and succeed in Phoenix – and it’s a fun group too!  I am a former board member and continue to support their efforts today. Women helping women!
