ccording to good old Merriam Webster, the definition of Summer
is : a period of maturing powers. I like to think our former editor
and Director of Marketing, Danielle Antos, is exploring her maturing
powers in her new role at R.M. Palmer. Danielle was a dedicated Chamber
colleague who returned to the workforce after staying at home with her
two lovely daughters, Sophie and Bella. During her tenure at the Chamber,
she started as the coordinator for the program work of Women2Women,
Family Business and our Training department. She eagerly took on
the role of Director of Marketing and continued the editorial work of
Women2Women magazine. Not one to be complacent, she was ready for
a new challenge and recently started as a brand manager at R.M. Palmer.
We thank her for her contributions, and wish her the best in her new
adventure.
In this issue I am delighted to feature some very progressive and
accomplished women in the legal field; funeral home business; and the
areas of medicine, education, building and engineering. I encourage you
to read their stories and learn how these groundbreakers truly paved the
way for future generations of women.
As we float through the summer days, we can't help but address workplace attire and offer tips on appropriate styles that don't push the "too
casual" button. Our marketing intern researched and wrote this piece,
and I'd like to take a moment to thank her for her work this summer.
Maggie is entering her senior year at Penn State Berks, dual-majoring in
Communications/ Marketing and Management. Not only did she intern
at the Chamber this summer, she held two other positions with Berks
County Living magazine and Brenntag. Talk about a go getter - thank
you Maggie for all of your help!
Boy, if you are in your prime years of planning for a baby, do we have
some useful information for you to consider. You'll learn about budgeting
for the new bundle of joy, as well as pregnancy in your 20s, 30s, and
beyond. We also delve into insights on infertility, and options if you
are having trouble conceiving. And, once the baby arrives, how do you
balance a career, marriage, and daycare? A local businesswoman came up
with an innovative alternative to traditional daycare!
And because summer months are ideal for vacation or just lazy days with
some R&R, our Women2Women readers offer their ideas for staycations
and Folino offers some tips for easy entertaining! So, relax and enjoy this
issue. We'll look forward to reconnecting in the fall when we unveil our
2017/2018 W2W Schedule of Programs and Events!
All the best,

Karen Marsdale
