Chrysalis Conversations Speaker Series

Chrysalis Conversations is our annual spring speaker series featuring local outstanding women sharing remarkable, educational, and meaningful wisdom. Featured speakers share their stories about their lives, the experiences they have had and the challenges they have faced.  We learn new ways of thinking, handling successes and challenges, and how their life experience can inform our own.
