 JANINA GOLDBERG
Janina-AwardPreferred meeting location(s):
San DiegoAfter spending more than 20 years in the pharmaceutical industry learning systems and processes that spanned across departments, quickly understanding the details and the end goal, discovering the fine line between efficiency and redundancy and then creating and training end users and outsourced support teams, Janina decided to take her talents outside the corporate world to work with women entrepreneurs who want to make more of an impact with their business mission but feel like there’s no time to easily change or incorporate one more thing!
 KATHY BLAIR
Kathy-AwardPreferred meeting location(s):
San Diego and San MarcosAfter 5-years running my own website design business I recently decided to change direction. While I enjoyed helping women business owners create their websites, some of the passion for that had left me. I was thrilled when I met my Nikki Afetian just as I was wondering, “What’s Next?” She said “I help women ditch their bras” and I said, “sign me up!” I am inspired by people doing good things for others and by women who have overcome obstacles to live their dreams. As a member of Soroptimist , I am passionate about the women whose lives we improve through programs leading to social and economic empowerment and feel that being able to offer the Ruby Ribbon opportunity to women I meet I can also help them live their dreams.

San Diego and San MarcosKelly Snook was born and raised in Ohio and is proud to call herself a Buckeye!  She has always loved to read, make friends, journal, and play games. Some of her background includes raising 3 children, Sarah, Eric and Drew.  She discovered she is a sales guru, and became a top representative of the company and the sales trainer. During that time she met Ellyn, her partner and love of her life.  They decided that they wanted to move from Ohio, and come to California to enjoy the sunshine and ocean. They also decided that they wanted to invest in the new community of which they were excited to be a part and so La Costa Neighbors was born.

San Marcos (and Carlsbad)I will start by saying that this is not what I thought I’d be doing at this point in my life, but things rarely turn out the way we plan.  I’m a Clean Living Consultant and educate others about how to live a cleaner life and get the toxins out of their home.   I market for the largest online wellness store in North America, and I LOVE my job!  After losing my husband to cancer almost 15 years ago, I’ve been able to turn my pain into my passion and I feel truly blessed.  I have two amazing children, Adam and Markay, who light up my world every day. I also have an amazing boyfriend, Ken, who supports me in every way.  I love to play tennis, travel, sail and go wine tasting.  Most importantly, I love to spend time with my family and friends, especially my GOGs!
