“It was an incredible honor to both sponsor this award as well as participate on the Woman of Distinction committee this year. Acknowledging the achievements of these forward-thinking leaders who have dedicated themselves to helping other women business owners is important to the growth of our community and our economy as a whole,” said Mina Fies, founder and CEO of Synergy.
