Event Description:
"You'd think that the state of entrepreneurship and the state of women's entrepreneurship are one in the same, but that isn't always the case. For women, wide involvement in the business world is still relatively new, and we continue to face our own unique challenges and barriers to entrepreneurship." - Kiera Abbamonte

At this April luncheon, Dr. Christa Slejko, President of Dallas College - North Lake, will moderate a panel discussion of female entrepreneurs as they detail their journeys and provide insights to their success. Open to the public, we've also invited young women from Coppell High School and Dallas College who are aspiring entrepreneurs. 
There was such demand for this event in 2022 that we've moved it to a larger venue at the Coppell Arts Center. 

We regret to inform you our previously announced speaker Margie Aguilar, ISP Creative, founder & lead, will not be able to participate in the panel. Filling in will be Cindy Andrew with 21 Designs.

In early 2020 they had an opportunity to merge their brokerage with Magnolia Realty, founded by Chip and Joanna Gaines.  Sharing the same values and service mindset as the Gaines’ made the decision to transition to Magnolia Realty easy and seamless.  In November of 2022, the Magnolia Realty Grapevine office opened, and Theresa serves as the Broker and co-owner.

In the fall of 2021, Theresa and her husband, along with another couple, opened Vine Academy: An Acton Affiliate in Grapevine, and Theresa serves as the Head of School for this small private school.
