We make a difference!

Fall always makes me reflect on the passage of “time,” as we prepare to transition into winter; the season I love the least.

I consider how the previous spring and summer were spent and what goals we have for continuing to engage women and girls in our community in the issues and interests that affect their future in the world.

Our spring and summer were filled with first-time, branch-supported initiatives and events.  We are experiencing exponential growth with rigorous recruitment of student affiliate members, and we have become more active and visible within our community.

I would like to build upon this momentum as we enter fall and winter.  I am excited about our upcoming 2023 – 2024 dinner programs on such crucial topics as human trafficking, preschool success and building women leaders. I want to publicly acknowledge and thank Vice President of Programs Joanna Pucel for her diligent efforts to work with our Program Committee to ensure we create diverse, informative, and meaningful engagement opportunities and programs each month that our members will enjoy and look forward to.

I also want to commend Jamie Swenson for her leadership and diligent work with our Fundraising Committee for Masquerade! our annual event. This event is core to financing the opportunities and scholarships we offer local girls and women who are striving to grow.

In humble gratitude I think of the one year I have now completed as Branch President, and all of the amazing things we have accomplished, together.  I look forward to another successful  year, and I am excited to see what new adventures are in store for us as the year unfolds.

I would love to hear from you. You can reach me at (612) 644-7705 or reach out at
