Cincinnati Museum Center
March 30, 2011
The Women’s Book, which publishes directories to leaders and local resources for women, held their Collective Magazine “Reinvention” issue release party on Tuesday evening at the Cincinnati Museum Center. Guests of the event enjoyed a private viewing of the world-renowned Cleopatra Exhibit (talk about a powerful woman) along with a few guest speakers. They included Takeysha Sheppard Cheney, Founder, CEO, & Publisher of The Women’s Book as well as Carla Walker, the Associate Publisher.
It was empowering just to be in a room with such go-getters. And for the few brave men who joined in the celebration (iSPIED City Council Candidate Chris Seelbach), I believe they came to appreciate the XX chromosomes all the more.
A quick spotlight on the local Cincinnati gals featured in the “Reinvention” Issue:
Kelly Leon – Public Relations executive to reinvented Over the Rhine jazzercise fitness owner. Leon left her job as the VP of Communications and Community Relations at 3CDC to pursue her passion for fitness and helping others.
Lyn Marsteller – Fundraising professional to inventor and entrepreneur. We’ve all had that moment, many moments in fact, of searching through our purse for the keys, phone, or a pen. Thanks to Marsteller’s inventive purse perfector, an organizer to fit in any purse, that is no longer a worry.
Yvette Renee Simpson – From the courtroom to the classroom and beyond. A graduate of Princeton High School, Simpson went on to get her bachelor’s and then her JD degree from the University of Cincinnati Law School. She practiced as an attorney for three years but recently left to develop the Pre-Law program at Miami University, a position she currently holds. As if that weren’t enough, Simpson has decided tackle a new and exciting endeavor… the world of city politics. Simpson is on the campaign trail to become your next Cincinnati City Council representative.
For those that are new to The Women’s Book, it is certainly a worthwhile investment of one’s time and money. Their print and online publications target professional women who are serious about their careers and overall well-being, but who also give back to their communities. iSPYCINCY is privileged to have met many of these defining women and can’t wait to see what’s next on the horizon.
