March Luncheon is March 13th – 11:30am – 1:00 pm

Location: Bonefish Grill

Karen began her interest in cycling when she was working at Bosch as a computer programmer and started commuting to work on her bike in 2010. About 9 miles each way and she fell in love with getting to my destination on her bike, whenever possible. I became involved with Bike Michiana Coalition, which is a cycling advocacy non-profit in the area and I also organize Bike to Work Week, which will be May 13-19, 2018. Karen currently owns Bendix Coffee , a coffee roasting business and delivers roasted coffee when she can, on my her bicycle too.

My topic will be safe cycling, 3 foot law, limebikes and the history of women in cycling.

Charrise McCrorey

April Luncheon is April 10th – 11:30am – 1:00 pm

Location: Bonefish Grill

Charrise McCrorey, founder, and CEO of Be Wildly Happy guides women to lead wildly happy lives at home and at work. She’s a certified business and life coach and has been in private practice since 2006. She’s a public speaker, a writer, and a business leader.
In this workshop, she’ll share her secrets for creating a life that she loves, by aligning with and enrolling a team of trusted advisors. She’ll help you see new ways to ask for guidance, shattering the myth that women must do everything themselves. You will learn how to integrate life-changing requests into your busy life. You will see new ways to discern what areas of your life in which you need trusted advisors and how to choose the right people for these roles.
Your life and business will improve if you integrate this practice.
