I think it’s important for people to know that I didn’t wake up one day and decide to start a network for women. I had earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting and worked for 3 years in that field until I finally found my purpose - after intensely pursuing it. Women By Choice was started as a personal blog that I created after realizing that I’ve always liked writing and had always been good at it. My intentions for starting the blog were to pursue what I thought my only purpose was, to inspire and empower women through my words. I was preparing myself to write a book. On my blog, I shared my journey of transitioning from a girl to a woman once I made the choice, at 28 years old, to hold myself responsible for my own happiness and accountable for my own success - hence the name, Women By Choice. After sharing excerpts from my blog about the negative experiences I’ve had with women in the past and my thoughts on what women could do differently to help us get along better on social media, I was surprised to find out just how many women could relate to my experiences and feelings. I knew then that I needed to create a space for positive, supportive, and success-minded women like myself to connect.

What started out as a small group in Tallahassee, FL has since grown into a global online community with chapters in six cities in the US: New York, Orlando, Chicago, Atlanta, Canton, and Philadelphia. I now host sold out events and retreats for women each year, have become an international speaker, was the March 2018 cover girl for Life Coach Network Magazine, won several awards from my community and peers, and been featured in The Huffington Post, Sheen Magazine, and now proudly, Women of MORE Magazine. I’ve been acknowledged as an Ambassador of Change in the city of Orlando and accomplished so much more that I am thankful for. I don’t share any of this to brag, but to highlight what can happen when you choose to walk fully in faith and be obedient to your purpose. I had no idea that choosing to honor my passion and start a blog would lead me to where I am today. I also want to point out that all of the amazing opportunities I’ve received were due to the connections I’ve made with amazing women, far too many to name. Truth is, connections are often more valuable than currency and women are much more powerful when we choose collaboration over competition. This is why Women By Choice’s mantra is “When Women Support Women, We ALL Win!”
