The National Association of Professional Women (NAPW) honors Mitzi Bowe as a 2017-2018 inductee into its VIP Woman of the Year Circle. She is recognized with this prestigious distinction for leadership in entrepreneurship. NAPW is the nation’s leading networking organization exclusively for professional women, boasting more than 850,000 members, a thriving eChapter and over 200 operating Local Chapters.
“I’m pleased to welcome Mitzi 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.”
Mitzi Bowe works as a Rehabilitation Assistant at Children’s Rehabilitation Services, a state agency that helps special needs children with their medical needs. In addition to helping with administrative tasks such as patient insurance and scheduling, she works with and assists an audiologist, a nutritionist and a speech therapist.
Recently, Ms. Bowe’s work at the agency has inspired her to branch out on her own to do even more to help these children and their families. “The most important part of my job is the welfare and well-being of the children, which is why I have founded Sammy’s House, a nonprofit organization and center for families with special needs,” she said. “It is a place where families can utilize our resources, programs and events to celebrate accomplishments and inspire success.”
At Sammy’s House, Ms. Bowe hopes to create a positive, nurturing environment where she will design customized programs for each child that will increase and encourage motor skills, muscle tone, self-esteem and social skills. “The journey is intended to be one of celebration, encouragement and inspiration, so that each family can achieve their greatest potential and live their biggest dreams,” she adds. “Our programs and events are to be developed according to age and skill level. Events for young adults and older adults will be designed to equip each with normal life skills as well as more advanced social skills.”
Ms. Bowe is looking forward to the future and providing children with special needs—and their families—the support and resources they need. “My mission is to motivate and encourage families to unlock their dreams, while dissolving barriers of differences and perception: to change the world one person at a time,” she said.
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, tools and benefits, professional women interact, exchange ideas, advance their knowledge and empower each other.
