A little history…

WomenCentric began in 2005 as a speaking group to spark new opportunities for five dynamic women. We gave corporate training and entrepreneurial workshops, and met countless amazing women and men. In 2011, I launched a beta online directory, providing a positive space to discover new work and career opportunities via stories of other women’s journeys, as well as deals and discounts to valuable Conferences and events. Our motto: ‘get listed, get found’ appealed to many – and within several years our roster included talented, ambitious women from 31 countries.

Today, I’m a mortgage banker by day and blogger by night, hoping to empower your journey, make you smile, provide some helpful tips and share my take on a variety of timely and interesting work/life topics.

Here’s to your success-
