The Covid virus has really taken a toll on our country, NAWIC members and the
So many changes are happening. I myself have had a reduction in my work hours.
I have always been a half full kind of girl. So, I have made plans to remodel me.
I will use this extra time to reboot myself and fingers crossed 2021 I will be healthy,
calmer and more as they say “centered”.
I give thanks daily for what I have achieved in my life. At this time of the year I have
great memories of my family cooking, arguing and loving each other.
In this month of giving, remember everyone does not have a roof over their heads, their
stomach is not full, their beds are not warm, be grateful of what you have achieved, give
praise that you are full, warm, and have a loving home.
I hope this Holiday Season brings you joy, love, family and friends.

NEF certifications and programs were created to give you the skills and tools that are needed to advance your career.

I am looking forward to continuing to be the voice of those that I serve with on the NEF board to continue to develop, modify, recreate opportunities/programs to those that want to further advance their careers and/or starting out in their new endeavors.
