BUSINESS / ORGANIZATION:
Empowering Women - Virtuous Women Houston!Houston, TX
ABOUT THE BUSINESS / ORGANIZATION:The Virtuous Women Empowerment Group is a safe place for women to use their voices and to be with and engage with like-minded women. Our mission is to challenge women to be their very best! We encourage women to cultivate self-care, bolster a rich life, to be empowered to do all they are created to do while supporting and loving themselves and other women.
THE STORY:During my career in the financial industry, I came to the realization that women tend to be so divided, competitive, and sometimes hard on each other! After retiring from banking, I began working with a nonprofit organization that advocated for women veterans. Working with the nonprofit helped me to create my vision to help all women and to bring us together, and Virtuous Women Houston was born!
ACCOMPLISHMENTS / ACCOLADES / AWARDS:My proudest moments surround awards, accolades, and the success I have enjoyed in my career. But 2020 gave me a richer perspective on my life... that my true accomplishments were when I had my three beautiful daughters and being present for my four grandchildren to be born. Most recently one of the young veteran women I mentor asked me to be her support in labor and delivery when she gave birth! I was there, it was a great honor!
LOOKING BACK:If I could speak to my younger self, I would tell her to worry less, and live more! Trust God to get you through the tough times, believe God for the unexpected and unbelievable, and always look for the best in everyone and everything.
GLOBAL FOCUS:After living through, and continuing to live through the COVID-19 pandemic, the world has become more real, and in need of diversity, social justice, peace, and unity. My thoughts would be to first have people accept each other, understand each other, and work together to create a more beautiful world. As long as we as people cannot see each other, or love each other, the world will continue to deteriorate.
