Supporting Us as VP of Marketing & Sponsorship


When asked, “Why join a networking organization called WomenIN” this is what she told us…

I have wanted to get involved in a non-profit organization for a while and when I spoke with Candida about WomenIN I knew it I would be a perfect fit. As a working Mom, I see the struggles we face throughout our career; whether it’s trying to climb the corporate ladder, re-entering the workforce after a leave, or not taking a leave when “that’s what Moms are supposed to do.” I feel we are judged if we choose not to have children, but also judged as putting our family before our career. We are taught that we can have both a growing career and a family; however, this is exceedingly difficult to do without the proper support. By “support” I mean not only our employer or partner, but our entire community.

I have been fortunate to have support throughout my life and career, but many have not. My goal by joining WomenIN is to offer support and mentorship to individuals and our community at large. There are so many driven, talented, and hard-working women in our community who have a spark in their eye and love in their hearts. We are all designed for greatness no matter what that looks likes to each of us. With support and encouragement, we can lead our best lives and encourage others to do the same.

Thanks Wendy, we are excited to have you as part of our team, welcome aboard!
