What is your favorite memory from your involvement with NeW?

My favorite memories of NeW thus far are embedded in the opportunities to meet and connect with like-minded women on campus and around Washington DC. One moment that has stayed with me is when NeW gave me the opportunity to eat dinner across the table from Journalist and New York Times Best-Selling Author, Katie Pavlich. It was an honor and a privilege to connect with such a successful conservative women who has influenced me in becoming a strong, independent, conservative in the field of communication. (Now my chapter is reading her book!)

How has NeW influenced your life?

I am so thankful for the Network of enlightened Women because it fosters a safe environment that enables me to discuss real issues that academics so frequently ignore. NeW truly provides a diverse network of women that I can rely on to help me with anything, whether it be in my career or my personal life.
