The National Association of Professional Women (NAPW) honors Cynthia Hewett-Fisher as a 2015-2016 inductee into its VIP Woman of the Year Circle. She is recognized with this prestigious distinction for leadership in business. NAPW is the nation’s leading networking organization exclusively for professional women, boasting 850,000 members and over 200 operating Local Chapters.
“I’m pleased to welcome Cynthia into this exceptional group of professional women,” said NAPW President Star Jones. “Her knowledge and experience in her industry are valuable assets to her company and community.”
With 30 years of experience in the retail industry, Cynthia Hewett-Fisher is justifi ably proud of all her achievements. Starting in 1984, Ms. Hewett-Fisher was a member of the Auxiliary at the University of California San Diego Hospital, helping with fundraising. She also volunteered in the gift shop and worked to become the Manager and Buyer between 1989 and 1996. She worked at Scripps Memorial Hospital Gift Shop up to 2014.
After her husband’s retirement, Ms. Hewett-Fisher moved to Magnolia, I A, and wanted to start a business of her own. An opportunity arose to acquire a small building on a main street in Logan, IA, and after three months, she had good enough fortune to open a second store, which continues to be well-received by the community.
Using her strong skills in customer service and buying, Ms. Hewett-Fisher is the successful Owner of Angels Corner Gift Shop, as well as a Buyer. She finds it most challenging to access and provide the right merchandise for the community while learning about her new surroundings.
“I am rewarded when I see the happy looks on their faces and knowing they will be repeat customers,” she said. She enjoys giving back to the local school, underprivileged families and the Humane Society. Eventually, she would like to open a healing and spiritual center and help revive the small town she lives in.
NAPW’s mission is to provide an exclusive, highly advanced networking forum to successful women executives, professionals and entrepreneurs where they can aspire, connect and achieve. Through innovative resources, unique tools and progressive benefi ts, professional women interact, exchange ideas, advance their knowledge and empower each other.
