I’m so glad you are here visiting our website and learning more about Sister Girlfriends. The story of this organization is, in many ways, my story. Founded in 2007, Sister Girlfriends is an organization focused on empowering women from all walks of life. It all started when women I met throughout my life helped me feel empowered and find the success I had been seeking.
As a teenager, I dropped out of high school during my senior year. Shortly thereafter, I became pregnant and depended on public assistance to support my child. A few years later, I met women who inspired me to set goals and strive for success.
Drawing from my experience, my passion is Empowerment! Those endless conversations with positive women encouraged me to aspire to become a professional business woman. Before I knew it, I had developed self-confidence and was ready to face my fears. I am proud to say that I accomplished every goal set forth by the grace of God and positive influences around me.
After earning my GED, I went after my long time dream of attending and graduating from Pennsylvania Culinary Institute. I continued to further my education and earned a BS in Business and a Master’s in Business Administration. Through my challenges in life, I have learned the importance of having positive people in your circle of friends.
Out of all this, Sister Girlfriends was born. First, in 2007, as a professional women’s networking organization, Sister Girlfriends focused on empowering women in their career. Now, six years later, Sister Girlfriends has broadened its focus to reach out to young girls, teens, women in transition and professional women. All of these women together will form a new circle of friends, a circle of women that can inspire one another, mentor one another and most importantly empower one another.
I hope you’ll join me on this journey, find empowerment and help other women, teens and girls become empowered, overcome their challenges and achieve success in their lives.
