"Being a new business in San Antonio, and being a woman business owner, I found the National Association of Women Business Owners San Antonio chapter to be a huge asset. The woman business owners and professionals I have met through NAWBO-SA are all fabulous women. On top of that they are supportive of each other and very willing to reach out and help. An added benefit are the programs that NAWBO-SA has in place to support us as women business owners!"

I served as President a few years ago, and consider it a privilege and distinguished honor to have been elected to lead such a prestigious group."
