debmangoltWhat is your profession? Co-author of Drink Wine and Giggle (101 ways girlfriends can connect, have fun and be inspired) and Event Planner for women groups, family reunions, and corporate team-building for groups that want to have fun while they learn new things.

What do you enjoy doing outside of your career? I am a licensed Life Coach and licensed Zumba instructor. I play golf, volunteer at Hospice and I’m an avid runner.

How long have you been a member of the Center for Women? Since 2007 (maybe earlier—I cannot remember living in Charleston without C4W and we moved here in 1997).

What inspired you to become a member? The programs that C4W offer cover the gambit. I love the staff and leaders at the C4W and feel extremely confident that the center is genuine in helping women to reach their highest goals. Jennet Robinson Alterman is truly an inspiration and we are so fortunate in Charleston to have the opportunity to get to know Jennet. I am especially honored in that Jennet has endorsed our book, which can be seen in the opening pages.

What kind of impact has the Center for Women had on you? Substantial. C4W has been with me through job changes, mid-life crisis, career changes, and much more. I’ve learned about putting together my website to building a business to having more joy in my life.

How has living day-to-day as a woman affected you? I am proud to be a woman. Although inequalities still exist, I will fight for my rights in the way in which I was raised—with compassion, honesty and a sense for community—and refuse to take the more aggressive approach to reach my goals.

What kind of message would you like to send out to women who are trying to succeed in today’s economy? Women are uniquely skilled and positioned to help each other. Find a network that offers support and relevant advice and then be ready to reciprocate. United, women are very powerful. There is a tremendous amount of talented women ready and available to help you succeed. You need only ask for help. Typically women do not like to ask for help but try it once and you’ll see how the network of women operate to make us all successful.

What is your profession? Publicist and writer

What do you enjoy doing outside of your career? Travel, reading, writing, good wine, Charleston dining, time with friends and family.

What inspired you to become a member? I met Jennet over a year ago when she was in the ABC studio for Lowcountry Live. The center was featured on the show again the other day and I decided on a whim to join. I’d like to connect with more women locally and want to check out speakers and events through the center.

What kind of message would you like to send out to women who are trying to succeed in today’s economy? Success is accomplished in the first step because joy is in the journey.  Your action ignites a chain reaction and the people, events, and circumstances you need for success will be drawn to you.

What is your profession? I am a clinical social worker in private practice in Mt. Pleasant specializing in individual, couples, family therapy and groups for women. My specific areas of expertise are in Substance Abuse, Family Systems and Women’s Groups.

What do you enjoy doing outside of your career? I love spending time with my husband and sons whenever I can now that my children are grown. Enjoy being outdoors, running, riding my bicycle and hiking, cooking (though I am a novice so it is more like Chemistry 101 Cooking), reading and, all of the above, when we are at our cabin in N.C.

How long have you been a member of the Center for Women? Fifteen years

What inspired you to become a member? I joined immediately after learning about the Center for Women. It was an organization that provided excellent training, workshops, etc at affordable cost.

What kind of impact has the Center for Women had on you? Every program and workshop has always been a great learning opportunity, inspirational and energizing. Connecting with other women, professionally and socially, provided the support and forum for my moving forward professionally. Jennet Robinson Alterman is an amazing woman, leader and organizer who has provided personal support, guidance and networking suggestions throughout my career. She respects the individual and, at the same time, understands the bigger picture. My work with the Center providing a women’s group reinforced for me my passion for working with women.

How has living day-to-day as a woman affected you?  It has taught me to prioritize and, at the same time, multi task, to bring my heart and values into day to day living and to learn from the past and not sweat the small stuff.

What kind of message would you like to send out to women who are trying to succeed in today’s economy? Never give up or live with regrets. Follow your passions and define success for yourself. Keep remembering it is the process not the outcome that matters in the end.
