Last month was ExperSPECIAL for me, as I was chosen to serve as a “leader of change” for the United Way of the Coastal Empire’s Women Who Rule campaign. It was a true privilege and honor to tell my story about the women who rule in my life. I was also given the opportunity to showcase ExperCARE and the many things it has taught me over the past 11 years.
This year, due to unprecedented times, the entire campaign was virtual- instead of an in-person panel discussion. But the show must go on! So, I was honored to virtually ‘sit’ alongside three esteemed community change-makers this year and share my story. Cecilia Arango (of Thomas & Hutton), Mary Noelia (of Latin Chicks & Mint to Be Mojito Bar), Edna Branch Jackson (former Mayor of Savannah), and I were interviewed live on Facebook about our opportunities as leaders.
Before we get too far, I’d like to explain what Women Who Rule is. It’s a social media campaign that raises money and awareness to provide women access to dependable transportation. Championed by United Way WOMEN UNITED®, the campaign features the stories of women leaders and local change-makers from all walks of life. I am honored to be chosen as one of the voices and hope it inspires others to give and do more good in our community.
Jennifer Abshire Davis from Abshire Public Relations visited me in my office to host a masked interview. During it, I was given the opportunity to share my insight on running a business, my stories of all the inspiring women in my life, and the honor it is to be a mom of two (soon-to-be three)! I am thankful for the opportunity to highlight and support the Women Who Rule campaign. The campaign raised over $30,000 just last week and will help hundreds of women in need across our community.
