Meet the Real Superwomen

Meet the DYNAMIC DUO I lovingly call, Superwomen!

Lisa and Paula are two of the smartest, savviest,  and probably the most fearless women I know.  They’re alpha, power women.  On more than one occasion, I’ve called them each Superwoman.  Both have made it to the C-Suite.  (C-Suite meaning:  CEO, CFO, COO, etc…)  To say they’re  ‘get it done’ kinda girls, is putting it mildly.

However, they’re also humble, approachable and engaging.   They’re generous and kind.  Both are devoted wives and mothers.  And most importantly, both have Jesus at the center of their lives. 

I can’t wait for you to get to meet them at ONE WOMAN!  They’ll be speaking and signing their new book, Remember Who you Are.

 

Paula and Lisa were once the fiercest of competitors in the drug development industry.  They used to glare at each other in passing.  However, those days are gone.  Paula and Lisa Grimes later formed a strong friendship with a common goal to promote female success and empowerment.

The duo’s most recent project is a book, Remember Who You Are, targeted at career women and men who want to improve working relationships with women.  It is a MUST READ for any woman in leadership.
