Thank you for your interest in the Junior League of Gwinnett and North Fulton Counties (JLGNF)!
I am excited and honored to serve as President during the 2018-2019 league year. As a volunteer, I love serving alongside our members, working in our community and leading our Leadership Team in fulfilling our mission and strategic goals.
I joined JLGNF after moving to the Atlanta suburbs from Sydney, Australia and I had no idea where to meet women that I would connect with for friends. My college friend was a member of Junior League of Atlanta and encouraged me to find a local league – she said I would find a group of smart, motivated women and lifelong friends. I joined JLGNF and immediately connected with several women who remain my close friends today. With that first goal met I really dug into what JLGNF could offer and took on the role of Cookbook Chair. I started to realize that what JLGNF could offer was much more than friendship or volunteer projects in my community. This was a place to push myself to my full potential, develop leadership skills that I could apply to my professional life and be a part of strengthening my community through advocacy and action.
This year we are working together to
- Create a member-centric league experience and increase our member retention
- Create an inclusive environment where members feel welcomed and valued
- Cultivate strategic long-term partnerships, supporting the assessed needs of our community
If you are a woman looking to make a difference in our community, please join us. You will make wonderful friends and gain valuable leadership training as you help improve our community.
