Recognizing Robyn Hill

Robyn Hill wears several hats, and they all fit her well.  

Robyn understands that winners step forward and do those things that others will not do, at least not with passion and consistency. Sunday evenings at 6:00 PM while much of the country is winding down from a busy or lazy weekend, Robyn is "cranking it up" with her Mind Healing Conversations Radio Show.

In addition to counseling and professional development, Robyn "gives back" as Executive Director of Virtue Inc for Women in Shaker Heights, Ohio.  Virtue Inc. is a non-profit, faith based organization providing community programming for women, adolescent and adult, of low to moderate income for the purpose of improving self-esteem and self-efficacy.

Our congratulations to Robyn and best wishes for her continued success.

Jeneen Ford's current Facebook Cover Photo sums it up in a single word . . . DETERMINED! Her favorite Quote is in alignment with the life she leads . . . 

"Seek those who find your road agreeable,
your personality and mind stimulating,
your philosophy acceptable,
and your experience helpful.
Let those who do not, seek their own kind."

-Jean-Henri Fabre

This Glenville High graduate of the Class of 1992 doesn't let grass grow under her feet.  She has earned a Bachelor of Science in Economics and Finance from Myers University, so she is not intimidated with that "Female Stereotype stuff."  Jeneen went on to earn a Masters in Business Administration / Organizational Development from the University of Findlay.  So how does she look like she is 19 years old?  One look at her mom (below right) should offer a clue.

There are numerous comments on Jeneen's Facebook Page that attest to her kindness, charming personality and determination.  

THANK YOU Jeneen for being the role model that so many are in need of.
