Networking and hiking!
I am a single mom of a 23 year old, 2 rescue dogs. I currently live in Sonoma, am an avid reader and love fashion and everything outdoors.
I founded MWAW 5 years ago as I have always loved working with and supporting women. I believe that by working together we can thrive not survive, live our best life and be successful-together.
We have many fabulous networking groups in Marin but I wanted (needed) a group that connected on another level. I want to be serious about building businesses and offering support while also enjoying our time together. No boring meetings!
I am a hugger (when we can) passionate about making and keeping connections, and driven for success. If that sounds like something you'd be interested in, join us and share your stories with us.
