Welcome to Roanoke for Women and Roanoke for Moms!!
Launching these online communities has been a vision of mine for the past 12 years. I am so excited and so scared in the same moment, that sometimes it feels like it’s hard to breath.
When I moved to Roanoke in 2003, I didn’t know anyone and I found it so hard, without a central resource and no network, to get connected, to find businesses that provided products and services that I needed or places to go, with or without my kids!
Coming from a big city, where online resources where everywhere, to Roanoke, where there didn’t seem to be a very effective (or pretty) one, especially for LOCAL WOMEN and MOMS, I knew that this was something that I needed to get started on.
Well, here we are, 12 years later and while life has thrown some curve balls and things have not gone quite as I had planned (that doesn’t shock anyone, does it?), my vision is now a reality and I can’t wait to share it with you.
Roanoke for Women and Roanoke for Moms have been designed to be your “Go-To” website for all things Roanoke, to be the place you can build or keep building your local network.
We have created a beautiful local business directory that will continue to grow as time goes by. For each business, you will be able to read about who they are and what they offer. All the contact information and online links are readily accessible AND you may even find a special promotion or two, listed here, just for our community users. The amazing thing is that all these businesses are LOCAL.
You will find an events calendar that will continuously be added to. You will find a blog that will sometimes be serious and sometimes be funny but it will always be informative and it will remind you of all the reasons why you love living here and all that we have access to that makes it GREAT!
I promise that these communities will grow and change to meet the needs of our community and of the women and moms who are hanging out here. We are a pretty important group of people I think.
If you have any suggestions, I am ALWAYS open to them!!
Roanoke has so much to offer!! Great businesses and organizations but also really great people. It is my desire that Roanoke for Women and Roanoke for Moms put all those things in one place for YOU to have easy and direct access to.
It’s time to reconnect our community, to make it stronger and help it grow. I hope that you will walk alongside me as we make that happen!!
