Women Empowered (WE) is incredible, vibrant, and thriving! Shelly started the group as a simple get-together but she has developed it into a solid non-profit that truly adds value to the lives of its members, volunteers, mentees, and anyone who gets involved in any way. I have known about this group for about 3 months, and already have a mentee, an inspiring network of women, a solid sense of women's success, and tons of outlets for giving back to the community. This is a dynamic group of women- all ages, backgrounds, economic status, careers, etc. I love it! The group is personable, engaging, and very interested in seeing women grow and develop professionally, personally, and socially. WE hosts entrepreneurship events, mentor/mentee events, fundraising events, health and fitness events, and a book club! All great things rolled into one group. I am so glad I met Shelly and am now an official WE member. Thank you

sulaj Rita, thank you so very much for your support! We are so lucky to have you as a member. Without the support and love we receive from our members, none of this would be possible so thank you!

WE is an amazing organization dedicated to inspiring and motivating growth, compassion, kindness, and more. WE encourages the building of friendships and connections between women of all walks of life. Dedicated to helping the community in a variety of fun, empowering, educational and humbling ways, WE is unique in its focus on personal growth, happiness and wellness of each member through various group activities and events in addition to community work. This organization understands the busy lives of the women involved, and encourages participation while appreciating every minute (even if it's just a minute) that is spent with WE. Exceptional organization..

I've been in the know with regards to WE since its founding and have seen it grow into a valuable institution that offers not only its members guidance, support and an avenue to further develop as better people but one that instills confidence in the community and promotes self worth throughout. I am certain it will continue its outstanding service and I look forward to its ever growing projects.
