Women Entrepreneurs Honored
The owners of a custom frame shop, a perinatal center, and an IT accessibility firm will be recognized by the National Association of Woman Business Owners and Wells Fargo at the sixth-annual NAWBO/Wells Fargo Trailblazer Awards in Atlanta this week.
The awards recognize business performance, innovation, growth, and community service, organizers said. This year's recipients will each receive $5,000 and will be honored at the 2007 Women's Business Conference on June 1.
They include Lucie Voves of Danbury, Conn.-based Church Hill Classics & Diplomaframe.com, Christine Wallace of Seattle-based Gracewinds Perinatal Services, and Debra Ruh of Rockville, Va.-based TecAccess.
"The diverse talent and leadership demonstrated by these three women is inspiring and extends far beyond the walls of their businesses," Joy Ott, a national spokesperson for Women's Business Services at Wells Fargo, said in a statement.
