Ellen Grace Henson, Marketing Mechanics

 “Volunteering at WIC has given me such an opportunity to understand the back-bones of a well-organized professional non-profit board. It also has given me tremendous deeper connections to professional women who I truly respect and admire. Volunteering has been my way of also giving back the support that I have gained from WIC in building my own business.”
