GT Leadership

“In 2009, I took the first step to make a dream of mine come true, founding a group to help local women and children in need. Bringing like-minded women together and leveraging our charitable donations allows us to make a bigger bang for our charitable ‘buck’. Thanks to the combined efforts of our seven founding members, we started an important and very rewarding endeavor. We hope this is just the beginning.” 

— Paula Norwood, Founding President
