Inspired by the voice of

My Mom

Growing up I always wanted to be a news anchor. I lived outside of Cleveland, Ohio and admired Wilma Smith who was a local anchor. I went to grad school and got my Masters in Mass Media Communications and realized I wanted to work on messaging behind the scenes and went into Public Relations.

A Voice of Inspiration

My Mother

My mom always believed I could do whatever I wanted to do if I put my mind to it. She had class and grace - two qualities I greatly admire.

Shared Voices

AMW is important because it provides a platform to inspire and connect with other like minded women.

My Mom

Be yourself and be happy with who you are. Not everyone is going to like you but you need to.
