    Tia Denise Scott Greetings Essex County Chapter/Community, Quick introduction- My name is Tia Denise Scott and I am elated to serve as your Chapter President! In addition to presiding over board and executive committee meetings and building relationships within Essex County, as “chief volunteer” I will work with a diverse array of individuals across all levels and from all walks of life to further the NAPW’s mission. *** Essex County is one of the most vibrant and liveliest sections in NJ housing over 20 cities with Newark, NJ, my hometown, being the largest as well as her county seat. Accordingly, Movers and Shakers from every corner of the World live here and are always looking for opportunities to get involved, build relationships and strengthen our communities. My number #1 goal as President is to ensure that our chapter not only becomes a part of this movement, but becomes one of its greatest contributors. *** That being said, it will take me time to get familiar with all that NAPW has to offer. While I work through the on-boarding process and get acclimated with the bylaws, benefits, rules and regulations—there are many of them—please feel free to shoot me a message or an email ( and introduce yourselves. Also, if you haven’t already done so, please follow/like us on FB @NAPWEssexCountyNJ I look forward to networking with you all, Until next time…All Best, Tia D. Scott **************************************************

    Sharon Landers Sharon Landers My name is Sharon Landers and I am a registered nurse at the State Correctional Institute in Waymart, Pennsylvania. I am recently a new NAPW member. I am a Breast Cancer Survivor and on June 2016, I started an online retail store, for women cancer survivors. The name of the website is, "Sharon's Inspirations LLC." Specializing in retailing of post mastectomy clothing for breast cancer women, swimwear, recovery care, accessories, and inspirational pieces from Precious Moments and Jim Shore, (Angels, Figurines, Gifts, and Collectibles.) Items are still being added to the website, by the end of August 2016, all of the products and items will be posted. In 1998, I was diagnosed with a rare breast cancer, during this difficult time I went through body changes and life challenges. Determined to fight, I underwent surgery, received treatments, and prayed every day for a successful recovery. I found it vey hard to find clothing that was comfortable and confident apparel suitable for breast cancer survivors. There were inspirational pieces that I had received from family and friends, that would help put the biggest smile on my face. It was during this experience that I realized I wanted to do more with my life. In August 1999, I entered nursing school at Penn State University's Worthington Campus for Nursing. With help, support and encouragement from loving family and friends, I was able to meet the challenges ahead of me with confidence and fortitude. Inspiration, determination, support, strength, confidence, caring, understanding and beauty are all words that define being a nurse. I love being a nurse, reaching out to people and being able to put smiles on their faces and hope in their hearts. My passion is to help every woman and make it easier for women to feel beautiful, confidant, strong and happy. Sharon's Inspirations provides you the opportunity to show just how beautiful you are inside and out. The website has a place for women to reach out and write messages, if anyone needs the support from someone who understands. As a Registered Nurse and Breast Cancer Survivor, I truly understand the love and support that is needed. Please, take a minute and look at ''. With love and hope, Sharon Landers R.N./ Breast Cancer Survivor Sharon's Inspirations LLC/ - See more at: The National Association of Professional Women (NAPW) - The Power to be You

    Karen Russell Hello Ladies! I have just launched my WomanPower Inspriation Network to inspire women to acknowledge and step into their natural power. So many women are yearning to let loose, to pursue a dream or an experience, to change some aspect of themselves in some way and feeling held back from doing so. Regardless of walk of life, the recurring theme is the way we think of ourselves. Women are powerful, point blank, and it's time for us to see it, feel it and be it. Change your mindset, change your life. Join me on August 17 as I present "Designing A Life You Love". Find out more at .

    Isabelle Gecils Looking for an inspirational summer read? Leaving Shangrila: The True Story of a Girl, Her Transformation and Her Eventual Escape is a story of how a young girl finds the strength to do what she must, and the consequences she needs to accept in order carry out her choices. Most importantly, this memoir is about escaping physical and emotional captivity. Isabelle uses her power of duplicity to break her shackles. In doing so, however, she faces the consequential realization that one will always be in some sort of prison, even after they find the freedom they are looking for. Leaving Shangrila is an inspirational story of finding yourself and the traits you need in order to do so. For more info, check out
