We are excited to launch this video page for women who prefer to speak their story rather than write it.  We invite you to share YOUR story of overcoming the fears, beliefs, or circumstances that once held you back in any way.  We know that your story can encourage and inspire many other women & girls.

We are very grateful to Elisa Gambino of One Productions for her excellent advice and tireless support, and we admire her commitment to the empowerment of women & girls in her personal and professional life.  We also extend many thanks to Scott Hayes of Altera Web and to Michele Bires of Sefcik Productions for their work in bringing this video page to life.
