How long have you been a member of the Center for Women? 1 year
What inspired you to become a member? I have always felt that women can be successful and happier when they work together. The Center for Women is an organization that inspires strong and hard-working women to support each other as a community. I wanted to be a part of it.
What kind of impact has the Center for Women had on you? The Center of Women allowed me to meet wonderful and strong women, and it opened my eyes to the wonderful possibilities that we have in Charleston. There is so much to be gained by the wisdom and experiences of others that are so willing to share.
How has living day-to-day as a woman affected you? I believe that as women, we are resilient, however, we often put others before our own needs which means we neglect ourselves both inside and out. We all should take some time for ourselves. When you feel good on the inside, your strength and beauty shows. Taking care of your skin is vital, but I have always said that skincare is not about looking as young as possible, its about looking as good as you feel.
What kind of message would you like to send out to women who are trying to succeed in today’s economy? Knowledge is power. Learn everything you can and keep up with the trends around you. With today’s shift in business and technology, it’s important to broaden your horizons and always be learning. And never be afraid to try new things, because you never know where that new idea or thought will take you.
