This is a testimonial given for Canadian Business Chicks.

The opportunity to be part of an event recognizing women living their lives with passion and positivity is a true honour. Supporting other women as they strive toward success in their own businesses and communities give each of us a reason to celebrate, and that is what Women of Inspiration is - a celebration of women inspiring others.

Women of Inspiration for me is really something that has walked the road of challenges and joys, and to share that with others in their lives, just really to foster growth and community amongst each other. I’m excited to be part of this event that really was doing that and a celebration of these incredible women in Calgary.
