Yesterday was International Women’s Day and social media was filled with women (and men!) recognizing the women they look up to admire. It’s a beautiful and empowering thing to see all these amazing women being recognized for the work they do and put out into the world. When I took time to reflect on the women who inspire me the most, the first ones to come to mind are the ones closest to home. This illustrated something really important to me, but first I want to highlight five of the inspirational women my life.
