Franchesca Gonzales was looking for a change in her career, but needed a nudge to push her. She had attended our annual Faces of Success Luncheon celebration and loved hearing the stories from past AWEE participants about overcoming difficult odds to change their lives. She joined AWEE’s mailing list to keep in touch with the latest AWEE news. When she read about AWEE’s new SheLEADS program, she knew it would be great for her. Waiting until the last minute to submit her application, she was ecstatic when she learned she would join 30 other women looking to grow both personally and professionally in the inaugural class. Motivated by stories of business professionals who took risks in pursuing their next career endeavor, she left her career in the banking industry, moved back to her hometown of Albuquerque and started a nutritional meal planning company. Once she gets the program running in New Mexico, she plans to expand to Phoenix to help people take a positive step toward healthy eating. Franchesca now wakes up every morning excited to go to work and thankful that the lessons from SheLEADS led her down a new path.
