"Before attending The Wonderful Women’s Club, I was concerned that most of the women present would probably be much younger than I am and at a different place in their lives. But I felt included and respected and that was a joy for me."

"There are many gatherings these days specifically for women, but this particular space is unique because each of the women feels included in a special way. No need to be shy, no need to pretend. Just be willing to listen and share if you wish."

"Mary Lou is a leader in the true sense. She inspires women longing for something more. She lifts you up and makes you feel like it’s possible to be your most wonderful self. It isn’t something she does – it’s who she really is."

"I’m always happy to attend The Wonderful Women’s Club because it reminds me that I am wonderful. That’s something I forget – in the busyness of work, home life, volunteerism, and extracurricular activities, it’s hard to remember that I am, at the core, wonderful. Spending time with other women who are accomplished, intelligent, and willing to listen to my stories and reflections feeds my soul."

"Mary Lou exemplifies what The Wonderful Women’s Club is all about. She is a lifelong learner who integrates her learnings into her daily life. She is authentic and loving, a wonderful listener, and just naturally makes everyone feel accepted and valued."

"At The Wonderful Women’s Club I feel good about meeting up with other women to listen and learn from each other. I leave feeling inspired, less alone, empowered and excited to listen and learn more."
