In the Spotlight
NAWBO-SA Member Since 2011
Ilene W. Devlin, Owner
IW & Associates
Ilene owns IW & Associates, a company that provides professional editing services for business or educational documents. Whether e-mails, letters, website text, resumes, or dissertations, Ilene creates the professional polish to make print or web text effective. First impressions count, and potential clients do judge a brochure by its cover and wording. Her motto is “You Write. I Polish.”
She also writes system operations manuals and business bios. For the 2012 NAWBO ESA Gala, Ilene wrote the ESA and the teen finalists’ bios for the gala videos, script, and the San Antonio Business Journal pullout.
Ilene holds a B.A. in Anthropology and an M.A. in Archaeology with a Museum Training minor. Her community involvement has included founding a computer club and work in various women’s organizations.
In her relaxing moments, Ilene enjoys photography, jigsaw puzzles, crocheting, reading, and travel. Of her top four bucket list items, Ilene has achieved two: several hot air balloon rides and an ultra-light session; she still has to complete the parachute jump and the photo safari to the Serengeti plains.
“Professional women join organizations primarily to make business contacts. We really hit the jackpot when the group also provides an incredible amount of fun and friendship. I found that when I joined NAWBO–SA. My work on the Entrepreneurial Connections and the ESA Gala committees lets me step outside the daily business world to encourage young women to excel and to award business women who have succeeded. I am so glad that I am a member of NAWBO–SA.”
Thank you Ilene for your time, commitment and dedication to NAWBO San Antonio.
We appreciate you!
