How I want to participate in PowerHouse
If we are just six degrees of separation from Kevin Bacon, then we are truly just one introduction away from the person (you know the one, the banker, attorney, logistics wiz, IT specialist, investor, mentor) who can help make our dreams realities. An unwavering believer in the power of the network, Christina is looking forward to helping create opportunities that empower the wonderful women of Montana to take their passions to action.
