Who is Miriam Barnett?- why you need to come and hear her speak next Wednesday March 9th, 2016.

I am proud to be a member of the Alliance of Women Owned Businesses and I am excited to blog about the speaker of the next AWOB Power Series being held on Wednesday March 9th at 5:30pm at the Inn at Gig Harbor. which is open to guests at no charge, and returning guests for $25.

I want you to meet Miriam Barnett, a special friend of mine that I cannot say enough about. She has been the the CEO of the Tacoma YWCA since 2005 and she was my inspirational teacher for my Fundraising Management Certification in 2012 from University of Washington Tacoma.

Miriam is an exceptional leader that I revere as one of Pierce County’s top non-profit professionals. The skill, knowledge and creative passion she exudes is extraordinary to say the least.  The YWCA embodies “survival” to all women. So who better can speak to survival skills and as a teacher of fundraising she is a master at building relationships.  I personally can attest to Miriam’s uncompromising  love and respect for every individual.

Last September Miriam, “the artist” participated in the Gig Harbor Open Studio Tour and here is a photo of one of her pieces, and a quote about it:

“My work is inspired by color, culture and the creative spirit that burns inside of me.
