Life sometimes conspires beautifully in your favor! That’s our story. We believe it was serendipitous how our paths continuously kept crossing; merging and intersecting creating an inevitable coming together. The mutual love of our families, our work and our community only served to seal the deal. The mission of Touchstone and the conference grew out of our desire, as women, to learn, grow and do better. Most importantly, our experience as mentors and support of other women and each other drives what we would like to encourage in others. It’s our dream to create a movement that promotes inclusivity, community and encourages trust and open discussions and sincere collaborations amongst women.

Strong women have leaned in for me my entire life; from my encouraging mother to my music teachers to TV newsroom managers. It is important for us to not only embolden other women but help them succeed.
