October 25, 2011 ~ What an amazing day! My friend, Shelly DeVore and I were nominees for 2 awards the Columbia Daily Tribune would be giving away at lunch. No biggie... It was an honor just being an nominee. Little did I know they announced me as the 2011 Business Woman of the Year! I was so not expecting that at all and wasn't even prepared! Truly what an honor but in all honesty I wanted to break the award and give a piece to the other 14 women that were nominees. I feel that not one person can impact this community but rather the many great women that were standing with me on the stage. I am so happy with my life and it's because of great people / women that I have to support me, encourage me and believe in me that makes it all possible. Thank you Columbia Daily Tribune, Commerce Bank, Moresource, Stoney Creek Inn, KFRU 1400, University Catering & Event Services, Nancy Allison Agent, Shelter Insurance, Lynn Maloney Acupuncture and The Sensible Group! Congratulations to all the women nominated for these awards.... you all deserve to be recognized for the great things you are doing for our community!
