Each year, the Greater Phoenix Chamber’s ATHENA Awards highlight 11 women at the top of their field, who demonstrate inspiring leadership within their industry, mentor women throughout their career, and act as dedicated community servants. Of the 11 finalists, three recipients are selected as ATHENAs. Over the past 34 years, 59 accomplished and compassionate Valley businesswomen have earned the title of ATHENA. Recipients are announced at the ATHENA Awards Luncheon, which will be on November 18, 2021. Register for the awards luncheon today!

Like Athena herself, I have found in my fifty-year long career in nursing, education, and leadership that the two most powerful warriors are patience and time, and that wisdom is the reward of experience.
Time and patience have provided me opportunities to serve my personal and professional communities, and to support future warriors through leadership and mentoring.
It is Athena wisdom that humbles me as I gratefully accept the unprecedented honor of being named an Athena finalist.
