Who WE Are

Who WE Are

Founding Team

Women Exceeding was birthed from a passion for helping others reach their full potential and a genuine appreciation for women working towards their dreams. Our founding team shared a love for learning about where people have come from and how they have reached success in their lives. Women have a negative reputation of breaking each other down and we wanted to create a space to validate the norm: we actually support each other. Women Exceeding really amplifies that truth. It is a way for us to encourage each other and help each other strive towards greatness.
