How I Want to Participate in PowerHouse
I’m interested in helping as a mentor and advocate for Montana women, especially for entrepreneurs and start-up businesses in need of help and advice in marketing and communications. Having worked closely with the Women’s Foundation of Montana the last two years, I understand the amazing impact women have on our communities and want to help ensure they’re successful in Montana.
