You can’t walk away from a moment like this and not feel empowered! We had a star panel of women leaders to kick off the inaugural Junior League of Washington Women’s Leadership Luncheon. I love how April Young, the Managing Director of Hercules Technology Growth Capital said that the idea is to continue to make progress so one day we’re not having women leadership lunches.. but rather leadership lunches! The personal stories of struggle, success, failure and humility really captivated the room. Hats off to our other rockstar panelists Bhavana Boggs of Ritz Carlton, WeddingWire’s Kara DelVecchio, Kelli Richardson Lawson from JOY Media Collective and the fab Cathy Merrill Williams of Washingtonian Media!

For a century the Junior League of Washington has been giving back to the community. They recently celebrated the last 100 years with their Centennial Fête. The black tie gala drew hundreds including DC Mayor Vincent Gray and the United Way’s Bill Hanbury. Held at the gorgeous National Building Museum it was a night of fun and continuous service to the community. The ladies are donating 100,000 books to children in need in the area over the course of the Centennial year. Simply amazing!
Honored to emcee.. here with Michael and Cheryl Heller

Fab finds + babes with brains what more can you ask for this weekend. My reporter buddy Courtney Robinson is one of many ladies involved with Tossed & Found. It’s the ultimate rummage sale of the season sponsored by the Junior League. It’s your chance to get big bargains on quality pre-owned housewares, clothes, books, electronics furniture and more! Everything for sale has been donated by members like Court or their friends and community supporters. The sale benefits the community programs JLW supports.
