Why she joined Purpose In Pumps…
“I joined Purpose in Pumps initially to network with other women and support my colleague. After attending the launch event, I quickly realized that this was the organization for me. The topics and interaction from the Pump Rallies have empowered me to take time to reflect on what my purpose is in life. The events have motivated me to make the dreams that I have always had for myself a reality. I look forward to future events!”
