International Women's Day Graphic

On International Women's Day we celebrate women who have made notable contributions to the betterment of society, locally and globally.

On a personal note, I want to pay tribute to the women in my life who helped shape who I am as an individual and who I am as a professional person. Take my mother, a strong-willed, proud woman, she always instilled in us (my sisters and I), good work ethics; be present, work hard, and do the best job you can, whatever your trade. My daughter - an ambitious, successful young woman - has in recent years served as a professional coach (what a proud moment!). And of course, my sisters who have been both a source of professional and emotional support. I love you all!

I'm fortunate and blessed to have had strong female role models in my life.

Who do you honor today?
