Celebrating Women’s History Month

Ronika Moody, JP’s Resource Development Manager, shares her reflection on Women’s History Month.

It is Women’s History Month, my second fave month, and the theme is, “Women Providing Healing, Promoting Hope.”

Throughout history women have been behind the scene trailblazers and nurturers. As nurturers we have always provided healing, and as trailblazers we continue to provide hope. We are a fierce force that continues to make strides in history!

With all that said lets continue to celebrate the great of yesterday, today and tomorrow!
