Last weekend‚ I had the privilege of speaking at the annual Siskiyou Women in Business (SWIB) event in McCloud. This year’s theme was “Roots & Wings”. It is always a pleasure to be in the district‚ especially when recognizing a group of people I deeply admire and respect – women in business. SWIB hosted a beautiful event where stories were shared from community members about the deep pride each of us has in the place we are rooted. I had the opportunity to share some of my own stories about owning a business – the support I received from those who believed in me and the challenges I had to overcome. My team and I left the event inspired and even more grateful to represent the people of AD01.
Siskiyou Women in Business is a non-profit group which supports business and holds a fundraiser to provide scholarships to young women with promising futures. It was an honor to be this year’s keynote speaker as well as have the opportunity to support a wonderful organization. Learn more about SWIB here.
