The 2014 FLOURISH conference was an incredible success thanks to the passion, energy, ideas, and connections from so many of YOU – 300 local women leaders – right here in Reno, Nevada! We can’t say thank you enough to you (our fab lady attendees), our incredible corporate sponsors, and our brilliant volunteer speakers…

 We are still swooning over Krystal Tingle‘s high-energy Love Jump, living wholeheartedly thanks to Amber Barnes, and actively listening because of LaVonne Brooks‘ expertise. Cheryl Erwin helped us find that work/life balance zen, and Carolyn Lazaro connected us to our true values!

Sharon DeMattia re-connected us to our dreams as we colored on the floor (how fun was that?!). Sharon Sperry led our incredible entrepreneur panel – thank you Ashley JenningsSeason LopiccoloFonda Redfox, and Laura Zander for the candid (and very entertaining) insight to successfully starting your own business!

And who else felt like Anna Maria Chàvez was talking directly to you, even though we were in a room full of incredible women? Her story, her passion, her drive – she truly believes in building strong women leaders. “Ask what you’re worth – then add 10%,” amen sister!


“Women need to support other women…”

You took Anna’s words to heart – FLOURISH raised almost $25,000 for our local Girl Scouts! That means YOU are building girls of courage, confidence and character. YOU invested in the best leadership program for girls. YOU believe in yourself, and want the same for our next generation.

Let’s keep up the momentum! Your donation can be made at any time throughout the year. (and here’s where we’ll do a quick shout-out … two incredible ladies called us after FLOURISH, and immediately set up bi-weekly recurring donations. Thank you for your generosity! You are a philanthropic inspiration to us all!)

Local Media Coverage

After the FLOURISH conference, Anna Maria Chàvez sat down with KTVN Ch. 2 reporter, Arianna Bennett, in Face the State to discuss the impact Girl Scouts has on people’s lives – whether they are girls, volunteers, or people who just love the organization. Here are Part I and Part II of the interview. Anna, you rocked it!
