Athena Award Thank You

October 9, 2018

Hey everyone- so even though I didn’t win last Friday, I am grateful for the exposure and opportunities being an ATHENA Young Professional Finalist has provided me, Blossom & Flourish, and the other organizations I serve. So, while I’m a little bummed I didn’t win, overall it was such a special and positive experience, and there’s so many people I would like to thank.

Thank you to my amazing husband Morgan for being my biggest supporter and often believing in me even more than I believe in myself.

Thank you to my parents who raised me to believe that with practice and patience I could do anything I put my mind to and for never telling me I couldn’t do something just because I am a girl.

Thank you to my Board Members who believe in my vision and invest their time and money toward making it a reality.

Thank you to all the young women I have had the honor and privilege of mentoring over the years. You are the #ATHENALeaders of tomorrow.

Thank you to everyone else - friends, family, donors, volunteers - who have supported me/B&F over the years. Whether you offered your your time, talents, encouragement, or financial support, I am grateful.

And, thank you to everyone involved with the ATHENA Awards who made this opportunity possible. Your hard work to recognize female leaders in our region and to share our stories with so many is outstanding and the whole event is truly world class.

And finally, congratulations to all the finalist and winners this year. You women are an inspiration to many! I wish you continued success and thank you for your leadership in our region.

As for me, I look forward to continuing to chase after my dream of raising up a generation of young, empowered, female leaders who will positively influence others and make a difference in their worlds.
