My Awesome Women Entrepreneurs (AWE) partner Evelyn Powers and I could not be more excited to announce the new Fairfax Chapter of AWE, and to welcome the AWEsome Ashley Bernardi, founder of Nardi Media, as chief inspiration officer!
AWE Fairfax welcomes women business owners from Fairfax, Fairfax Station, Springfield, Burke and Clifton. Whether running a well established, successful firm, a side hustle that feeds a passion, or seeking support while taking the first leap into entrepreneurship, all are welcome!
And this is just the beginning: We have awesome leaders ready to start new chapters in DC, Bethesda and Tysons/Vienna this fall too — look for announcements about those first October meetings coming soon!
The first AWE Fairfax meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, September 20th, 6 – 8 pm at Ashley’s beautiful home. Please join us! Evelyn and I will speak briefly about what membership in this growing organization entails, but mostly we’ll enjoy some snacks and drinks, connect with one another and have some laughs. Because busy women entrepreneurs sometimes just need a little fun!

Why Lead an AWE Chapter?
Ashley Bernardi explains what prompted her to lead this new Fairfax chapter of AWE:
“I launched my business in 2015, from my basement that I shared with my kids as their playroom. For months, I remained isolated (and very lonely!) in my tiny windowless corner of my home. Little did I know or realize there was an entire world of women entrepreneurs like myself out there waiting to meet me…some of them literally just right down the street.
My business (and my happiness) didn’t start thriving until I literally put myself out there in the world and started connecting with other women entrepreneurs. That was a game-changer and turning point for me. My mind – and my business – were hungry for community, collaboration, and friendships with like-minded women business owners. I wanted and needed more!
Enter Awesome Women Entrepreneurs. I have been blown away by the enthusiasm, support, collaboration, creativity, and passion behind this AWESOME organization. I am surrounded by sisters who are rocking their own businesses and thriving off collaboration and creativity from other awesome women business owners. Together, we make the world better, all while fulfilling our own passions and building meaningful relationships.
I’m passionate about helping all women realize their potential once they take a step to connect with other like-minded women. I’ve seen the results and growth in both my personal and professional life, and I am so excited for you to embark on this journey with me. Get ready for both your life and business to change in ways you never imagined. There is power in awesome women gathering together, and I invite you to join us and experience the AWEsome transformation that happens when we get together.”
