Our Q & A with Trixy:
What made you want to join EWPBF?
At first glance, it was the prestige of it all. I admired the women in the community for their work collectively and individually. I wanted to be surrounded by like-minded women. I did not want to be the smartest in the room; having the wealth of information and wisdom in one room was very rewarding.
How has EWPBF helped your career so far?
By being part of EWPBF I have had opportunities to showcase my leadership skills in the workplace. EWPBF has also shown me how to help raise up other women so they can also lead and succeed.
How has EWPBF helped your personal connections with other professional women so far?
Had I not become a member of EWPBF, I would not have formed the close relationships that this organization has allowed. These relationships will last a lifetime.
What is your proudest moment since joining EWPBF?
Serving as president and having women surround me who truly had my back and wanted me to succeed. Teamwork really makes a dream work.
Is there anything else you'd like readers to know about why EWPBF is important to you?
I believe in helping other women lead and succeed. I am most proud of EWPBF for giving back thru scholarships. I love seeing previous members put scholarships in their names to help sometimes underprivileged girls and women further their education
