"I have been involved with the Seattle LWT group for a year now, graduating from and being a group leader for the 2016 class. I am looking forward to being a group leader for the 2017 class as well as getting more involved with LWT. I am currently helping with expanding the membership in the Seattle group.
LWT has been a wonderful place to sharpen my skills, pick up new ideas, meet new people and expand my network with supportive relationships. One of my joys in life is to help women empower themselves, watching them grow and succeed in their lives. LWT is a great place to participate in this."
