Leading Ladies International: 4th Annual Empowerment and Leadership Conference

A few weeks ago, I told you guys I was honored to be chosen as a 2013 Leading Lady by Leading Ladies International. This past weekend was the 2013 conference, where I spoke on a panel with other amazing women regarding The State of the Union on Women’s Health and other issues women face. It was such an honor to be able to share my story and my work for Bleeding Heart Project with others but most importantly to share my story with other women. I always become overjoyed when  others come up to me and tell me how much I’ve inspired them! This conference was packed full of inspiration, empowerment and love, I had an amazing time!
