Publisher’s Page March/April 2015

LWMMarchApril2015small_Page_09In addition to being born in the spring (I am a June baby!) at the end of winter I wait with excitement and much anticipation for the first sign of early buds on trees, warmer weather (no more snow!) and looooonger days soon to  fill us all with sunshine – the best vitamin D one could ever wish for. Spring, I remind myself, is the season of new beginnings and it is on the way…woohoo!

As a life learner and curious educator, I know how spring also brings the end of the waiting game for the “fat package” – the one parents and high school seniors hover around mailboxes for – awaiting the “right” decision (see Luanne Lee our college Coach – Mom, Dad I Got Accepted!).

The college application, its process including standardized tests, AP classes, extracurricular activities (the right ones of course), fees for the applications, etc., is NOT for the faint at heart. Need I remind you, funding one’s college dream for parents and the scholar takes time, preparation and smart goal-planning. Val Kaiser, our resident financial planner, shares money tips that can help with college expenses OR your own retirement plans. (page 25)

The road toward greatness lies not in the moment. Instead it lies in the matter and momentum over a lifetime which requires a regiment and resilience to never give up – Not EVER.

Celebrating 25 years, it is clear our cover WOMAN, Kristina Bouweiri, CEO of Reston Limousine and Founder of Sterling Women prepared, worked
hard and is reaping the bene ts. The “most admired CEO,” my friend Kristina Bouweiri is everywhere. We are proud at VA Loudoun WOMAN
to share her story “She Has Your Ride” – agood read, empowering in her own words.

I’m excited to welcome a special columnist, Pat Wirth (page 17). She has a new cause and invites us to celebrate the history of women in Virginia
with a group you probably have never heard of. With Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., her quest to raise money and save a legacy is more than
history, it is all WOMEN.

Happy to celebrate spring, let us remember and honor those we love. March is Women’s History month. Celebrate her. Love her. Learn more about her and always take care of HERstory!

I’ll see you out and about!
