Q: Where do you live?

A. Marin County, California, USA

Q: Tell us about your organization.

A. NEW of Marin supports the business growth of its members through networking and education. In addition to our networking events, NEWofMarin raises funds for local and global organizations that empower women and girls locally and globally through our semi-annual silent auction.

Q: What is the one piece of advice you would like to share with other women looking to start an organization?

A. Get a small group of committed people with varied skill sets to begin your organization and make sure you all have the same vision. From there you can exponentially grow your group by all of you sharing and inviting others to be a part of what you are doing.

Q: How can WorldWideWomen readers get involved in what you are doing?

A. If any of the readers live in or near the San Francisco Bay Area, we would love them to come join us at our monthly dinner meeting to find out more about our awesome supportive community. NEWofMarin.com

Q: Who is the greatest female influence in your life?

A. I’m inspired by so many women who have rallied against all odds that I cannot pick just one.

Q: Please share with us something that you want other women around the world to hear.

A. If you don’t see a way at first, don’t give up. Share your vision and your passion with others. Like minded individuals will be attracted to what you are up to and eventually you will realize your goals. No matter what it is that you dream to do, write out your plans, share it with others, and don’t be afraid to ask for help.
