It is an honor and a privilege to have the opportunity to sit on the board of The Women’s Fund.  As a proud Greeley resident, a business owner, and most of all the mother to my young daughter, I acknowledge that our world has faced many challenges over the past couple of years.  I feel as if we are in a new age, there should be no limit to what we can accomplish… the future is so bright for the women and girls of Weld County and I am excited to be a part of that progress! I hope to bring energy and excitement to the board and make sure that the women and girls of Weld County know that they have our support and we value them always.  As Serena Williams said, “Every woman’s success should be an inspiration to another.
