Climb Mount Kilimanjaro with Bold Betties


Bold Betty


CHAPTER: Charlotte, NC

FAVORITE ACTIVITY: Exploring! Meeting new people, eating new food and visiting new places.

DAY JOB: Senior Relationship Manager in the Center of Excellence at TIAA

I was first introduced to the BOLD Betties during my solo cross-country road trip last year.

It didn't take much explaining and background to hook, line, and sinker me into becoming more involved. While the thought of being a chapter leader was intimidating, I knew I wanted to devote more time towards helping women build themselves up and get outside more. I just knew I had to let everyone else in on this hidden gem.
