How has being a member of the WOGA Community impacted you personally or professionally?

Since joining WOGA I have gained knowledge, a network of amazing women in the industry, and been able to participate in Lean In Circles and other events that have helped me develop and grow professionally and personally.

What has been your favorite memory of your involvement with WOGA?

WOGA has been a wonderful experience.  I would say my most favorable memory to date would probably be the clay shoot we did in 2017.  There was a great turn out of women, and it was a fun event that also led to the meeting of several other amazing women.
