What is your profession? Certified Financial Planner™, Morris Financial Concepts, Inc.

What do you enjoy doing outside of your career?  Karate, cycling, swimming, cooking, wine, the ocean, quality time with friends and family.

How long have you been a member of the Center for Women? 1992 – Brenda Hewell and I wrote the original 1023 that got us the 501c(3) status.

What inspired you to become a member? Creating a place where women are the source and the foundation – where women can be enriched and inspired – where as a community we can make a difference in the lives we touch.

What kind of impact has the Center for Women had on you? A comfort that it exists, it supports issues that I care about, and that I have a community to turn to. 

How has living day-to-day as a woman affected you?  One natural tendency of women is to care – to care about “the world” and all it encompasses.  This caring translates often into the joys of seeing others blossom and communities thrive, while the challenge is to balance the tendency to try to do too much.  I live this as a woman day-to-day.  I take care of my husband of 32 years, 3 adult boys who are now starting their own lives and families, run a successful business (30 years this June), and am deeply committed to active involvement in the community.  The balancing act is often challenging, but as the intentions are good so are the outcomes.

What kind of message would you like to send out to women who are trying to succeed in today’s economy?  Focus on what is important, be patient, continue to love especially yourself, and don’t let “success” be a barrier – the only failure is not trying.

My office – Morris Financial Concepts, Inc, is in the Old Village of Mt Pleasant – 107 Pitt St right next to the Post House.  Stop in around 5, and we can go next door to have some quality time and perhaps a glass of wine, 2 things that are important to me!
