What is your profession?  I am a registered nurse at a local community hospital in the newborn and Level II nursery. I have most recently started my own business, Nurse at Night, Inc. My greatest goal for the business is to help new parents by caring for their newborn at night to assist them in getting a good night of sleep so they can be well rested for the next day.

What do you enjoy doing outside of your career? I love doing anything that involves spending time with my husband and two lively boys. You will find us at the park, aquarium, children’s museum, or volunteering at our church.

How long have you been a member of the Center for Women? Less than a month

What inspired you to become a member? My friend Corrie with Teacups and Trucks introduced me to this wonderful community of women. After the first networking meeting I knew I wanted to be a part of this organization. It supplies you with so many wonderful resources and introduces you to wonderful women who know exactly what you are going through and will journey along side you.

What kind of impact has the Center for Women had on you? It has surrounded me with women who are like-minded and it has helped give me the courage to take a leap of faith in the business world and start my own business.

How has living day-to-day as a woman affected you? I love being a woman, a wife, a mother, and a friend. I have always tried to stay true to myself and who God has created me to be and I feel very blessed to be a woman.

What kind of message would you like to send out to women who are trying to succeed in today’s economy? Find out what your passion is, think of a way that it can help others, and go after your dream. Surround yourself with people that will encourage you and eliminate those around you that tell you your goals are unreachable. Pray about your business idea and get a true sense if its something you should pursue. Get involved with the Center for Women and let them lead and guide you in your steps to becoming the woman your were called to be.

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.

What is your profession? Executive Consultant with Rodan + Fields Dermatologists /Broker-in-Charge of Charleston Real Estate Associates

What do you enjoy doing outside of your career? I love to travel, read, but mostly I enjoy spending time with family and friends.

How long have you been a member of the Center for Women? I have been a member for just a few months, but have used their services when I  moved to Charleston a year ago.  I  loved all the sessions I have attended at the  Center 4 Women which made me want to join.

What inspired you to become a member? I love all the wonderful training and information that the center provides for women in the Charleston community.  They have such diverse programming and wonderful speakers.  I believe the center makes a difference for hundreds of women in our area.

What kind of impact has the Center for Women had on you? The center has helped me transition into my new life here in Charleston, I actually ran into my new business partner at the center.  I know the center has been instrumental in changing my life.

How has living day-to-day as a woman affected you? Nothing is easy about being a woman!  Mother, Sister, Daughter, Friend, etc. are only a few titles that we hold as women.  I strive everyday to make sure that I am the best I can be regardless of which title I am fulfilling at any given moment.

What kind of message would you like to send out to women who are trying to succeed in today’s economy? Don’t let ANYONE get in the way of you reaching your goals.  Set goals and set them high for yourself.  Being in real estate in the present economy has been very challenging to say the least, but that has helped move me to my new venture as an Executive Consultant with Rodan + Fields Dermatologists.  I have been given a gift, and I plan on making a difference in my life and the lives of others.  I have partnered with two of the most successful women in the world.  They are pioneers in the industry and have been called the “Dermatological Dream Team”.  What they have done for acne they are now doing for Anti-Age.  They have one of  the most competitive pay plans of any Direct Sales company, and the positioning in today’s market is perfect.  This is a ground floor opportunity, and I look forward to reaching my goals.  I truly believe this will happen, and I am looking forward to reaching for the stars.

What is your profession? I am a patient care coordinator at Belle Hall Eye Care. I’m also the South Carolina chapter leader for the National Cervical Cancer Coalition. I founded this chapter in January 2011.

What do you enjoy doing outside of our career? I like to spend time with my family, friends, & loved ones. I love to practice yoga, visit antique shops, & spend time with my border collie, Rainer. I’m an active volunteer and visit with a woman named Tallulah who is 102 years old. Currently my main focus is with the NCCC SC Chapter I started earlier this year to spread awareness on cervical cancer and HPV. We are holding our first chapter fundraiser on Thursday, December 1st at Fish Restaurant from 6:30-8:30pm. The event is called “Sercys for Spreading Awareness” and will have a silent auction and cocktails.

How long have you been a member of the Center for Women? I became a member in September 2011.

What inspired you to become a member? I came across the C4W’s Facebook group page and saw how so many women were supportive of each other. I immediately researched & joined it because I thought it would be a great opportunity to meet other women that were doing great things in the community.

What kind of impact has the Center for Women had on you? The organization has helped me realize how important it is to have supportive women in your life. I am looking forward to attending events and becoming more involved with this wonderful group. I think that this organization has a wonderful message for women and I’m proud to be a part of it.

How has living day-to-day as a woman affected you? Being a woman is a wonderful thing, but can definitely be difficult at times. I’m the kind of girl that wears my heart on my sleeve. I’ve had some ups & downs over the past couple of years; however, I’ve turned a difficult situation into a positive situation by starting the NCCC SC Chapter. I feel by telling my story  & spreading awareness on cervical cancer & HPV helps others and may just save another woman’s life.

What kind of message would you like to send out to women who are trying to succeed in today’s economy? I would like to let women know that even in this economy, you still need to be happy in what you are doing. If you aren’t happy with your job or your current situation in life, it makes it more difficult to be successful. Become a volunteer to help out an organization that means something to you. Being an active volunteer in your community is the most wonderful gift you can give to yourself and others.
