Decade of Dynamic Women Honorees Announced

06 Jun 2019 1:02 PM | Working Women (Administrator)

Over the past decade, the number of women-owned companies has grown at a rate five times faster than the national average, with Florida leading the way. Working Women of Tampa Bay has lead the way in celebrating and cultivating connections for women and becoming the largest women’s networking group in Tampa Bay. As we approach our ten-year anniversary, we look to honor ten women who have played an integral role in our growth during a Decade of Dynamic Women Dinner on Thursday, September 5, from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. at the Bryan Glazer Family Jewish Community Center.

These powerhouses have helped WWOTB become more than a simple networking organization but an avenue where meaningful connections are forged and women lift each other up—often in life-changing ways.

Honorees include:

  • Kristi Campbell - Franchise Owner, Home Instead Senior Care Tampa - Brandon
  • Sharon Fekete - Founder, The Doctor Whisperer & 13th Avenue Media
  • Beth Kerly - Associate Professor Business & Entrepreneurship, Hillsborough Community College
  • Jen McDonald - Vice President, Merchant Insurance Solutions
  • Brandi Morris - Founder, Brandi Image Photography
  • Michele Northrup - Founder, Intensity Academy Sauces
  • Patricia Rossi - Business Etiquette Coach, Speaker and Author
  • Effie Santos - Founder and CEO, Red Root Strategies
  • Laura Sokolewicz - VP of Marketing & Aesthetics, Academic Alliance in Dermatology
  • Lana Walsh - Membership Development Representative, Grow Financial Federal Credit Union

Proceeds from the dinner will go to support the Working Women Foundation that builds a supportive community of mentors and offer start-up grants to women entrepreneurs. Founded in 2016, the Foundation has given more $20,000 in seed money to more than 30 women-owned businesses. These financial awards have led to tremendous growth on the part of their recipients.

Sponsorships for the event are available.  For more information, please contact Michelle Turman at 813-839-2282 or via e-mail

This event will take place during the two-day Working Women of Tampa Bay Annual Conference September 5th & 6th, 2019. Register for both events at
