WCWP Expo is the brainchild of Kathy Arnos, a California-based mother, author and producer, who recognized a need for guidance and education in the community. "My hope is that the Expo offers families a type of handbook for building positive role models, both within children, and adults, which will help create empowered balanced families, and a healthier planet for our future."
