Women Celebrating Women
The word inspire is defined as the act of filling someone with the urge or ability to do something, and here in Chattanooga, we have no shortage of incredible women who motivate those around them day in and day out. Whether they intentionally set out to be a role model or random acts of kindness are simply in their DNA, these women are making the world a better place. Read on to learn more about the individuals who encourage others to be the best version of themselves told by those they inspired most.

To know Cindi is to adore her. People often say I take after my mom, which happens to be the best compliment anyone could give me. Imagine being compared to a selfless, loving, constant person. She is one who stands at the foot of Goliath and says, “Bring it on.”
Lovingly devoted to her community, faith, and friendships, she always puts others before herself. From working closely with heart disease survivors to chairing the entire Go Red for Women Luncheon, she shines and gets her job done. She also devotes time to the Good News Club at Hixson Elementary School, which sheds light on positivity to young children. Growing up, she was the master of swim moms and teen girl sleepovers. Now, we’re just as comfortable with Saturday wine nights and early morning yoga sessions. She’s my favorite partner for walks through Greenway Farms and duets to “Jessie’s Girl” – a built-in best friend.
Imagine being compared to that … I’m the lucky one.
