“A woman in harmony with her spirit is like a river flowing. She goes where she will without pretense, and arrives at her destination prepared to be herself and only herself.”  

This quote from Maya Angelou reminds me of the women you’ll find in these pages. They are strong, determined leaders, both in business and the community, and are helping to make our city better everyday. I hope you are as inspired by reading their stories as I have been by telling them. As a mother of four young women, I aspire each day to instill in them strength, independence and compassion, as well as an unshakable faith. It is a privilege to do what I do and to be able to tell these stories, and I thank you for reading them.
