Inspired by the voice of

Carolyn Minter

Every Saturday morning as a child, I went to the "beauty parlor" with my Mom. I wanted to be a hairstylist! I knew at an early age that I wanted to be where she was and do what she did...

A Little Bit About Me

As an Events Director, I'm not quite the hair stylist. That said, I love what I do, and I know my mother is proud of what I've become today.

A Voice of Inspiration

Carolyn Minter, My Mother

Even though my Mom didn't work outside the home after my sister and I were born, she was always making a huge impact. She was our girl scout troop leader, president of parent teacher organization, volunteered at our local hospital and even fostered babies until they were placed in permanent foster homes.

Mom taught me that you can make a difference whatever you do, wherever you are!

Shared Voices

AWM connects people! It gives women the "Atta Girls" we don't often get otherwise. It cultivates community and collaboration and support. It fosters a place for us to be courageous and have our voices heard.

Always leave when you are having the most fun.
