Work Life Balance + Wellness
Tuesday, September 20, 2016

Women everywhere can relate to the need to find a balance as we try to do so much for work and our families.

During this happy hour we will hear from a wellness expert and have candid conversations with each other - what works, what doesn't - taking this a step further to talk about balance holistically.

Cost: $35
