Her-story / The "Why"

Every woman and girl deserves and is entitled to be...heard, respected and valued. Unfortunately, these fundamental Rights, across the global landscape aren't practiced 100%. It's time to change the dialogue and increase our actions.

I wanted to be part of an organization that helps women globally take ownership of their lives through health, advocacy and business ownership. This (fantasy) organization would value and embody global stewardship and create an environment where women could learn about prevention, challenges, solutions and remedies regarding their health.

I envision this organization providing the "reality check" for creating and running a business. I had a vision of this organization being the "Well of Strength" for women Veterans and women in transition as they find their VOICE. I envision this organization equipping our girls with a "life tool kit" to cultivate their power and use it for good. I envisioned an organization that values and respects each woman's journey without judgment while assisting in identifying each woman's gifts and talents. Needless to say, I haven't found such an organization that embodied or resembled all that I had envisioned. Therefore, I decided to build it!!

The Women's Empowerment Series, Inc. is a global organization with the ability to be of service where needed. We assist women and girls to organically find their Voice and be unapologetic as they stand in their truth. All programs and services are created by women for women and all Facilitators and Instructors are women. We believe your environment sets the stage for your experience and I believe every woman and girl deserve the best because we are worth it. Therefore your surroundings will be beautiful with each and every engagement that you have with us. We will encourage you not to be afraid of your Voice as you Own Your Power. We will teach you, encourage you, motivate you and celebrate with you.

All my Jesuit education, lessons and experience (both positive and not so much) have led me to this moment of giving. Words that are the cornerstone of my life, " To whom much is given, much is required." Therefore, our Board of Directors, staff & myself are honored to be of Service.
