That morning Alaina shared her journey as a woman in digital. From her experience in the radio industry to her move to advertising and digital marketing, she faced sexism and jaw-droping discrimination all along the way. The energy that morning was indescribable and in that moment, a movement was born.

She believes that in our vulnerability, and in sharing our stories – we can all empower each other and truly be free.  More about Alaina After seven years in radio as a journalist and a morning show co-host, Alaina made a departure from the industry after finding its barriers for women leaders far too overwhelming.

Hooked on digital she became a Sr. Interactive Copywriter at a national agency by day and a blogger by night. While she wrote copy for major brands and sketched wireframes out by hand she mastered SEO and the power of community building with her blog, MsSingleMama.com, which ultimately attracted 30,000 readers a month and a loyal following of single moms. In 2009, after facing a healthy amount of discrimination at work by her creative director and an insatiable drive to create websites that actually ranked in search and performed in social, she created her own digital agency. Cement Marketing is now one of the leading creative digital agencies in the Midwest. The agency is also the founding sponsor of Women in Digital and continues to fund our start-up phase.

And now I am happy to share with you NAPW – Midlothian's 2015 RVA Inspiring Women.  Please note that this is just snippets of what these amazing women do! Angie Brooks Richmond-based singer, songwriter, ukuleleist, educator and yoga instructor, Angie Brooks was born and raised on the Chesapeake Bay in Hampton, Virginia. Angie started performing at age five and continues to nurture her love of performance and singing as a member of the old standards and jazz band, All the RAGE (Richmond Area Geriatric Ensemble) and the River City Ukulele Society. She has practiced yoga for years, received her 200 hour teaching certificate in February 2013 and is a registered yoga teacher. Often referred to as the Ukulele Yoga Lady, Angie is an impassioned advocate for the healing power of music and yoga and has developed a holistic-based program for memory care patients that incorporates gentle yoga combined with singing and the sounds of the ukulele. Inspired by her own grandmother’s journey with dementia, she lovingly shares this innovative combination with brain injury patients, seniors and those with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Her intention with this program is to assist the patients with easing anxiety and stress, and to guide them to find calm, peace and joy in everyday life. In addition to sharing music and yoga with memory care and brain injury patients, she teaches ukulele and yoga to the 4th-8th graders of Aylett Country Day School in Tappahannock, Virginia. She also provides private instruction in ukulele and yoga, and leads beginner ukulele courses throughout the year for the 55+ Active Lifestyles club with Chesterfield County Parks & Recreation’s Senior Center. Allison Perry Gilbreath a full time student in the Masters of Social Work program at VCU, the Community Engagement Manager at PCAV and an intern at Lieutenant Governor Ralph Northam’s Office. In January 2011 while interning at the Virginia General Assembly, Allison started the process of becoming a Court Appointed Special Advocate. In April 2011 she completed the program.  Allison graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University with a Bachelor’s of Science in Criminal Justice in May 2011.  During the summer of 2011, Allison was selected as a Virginia Governor’s Fellow and served in the Office of Public Safety.  After the program’s completion, Allison was hired as a Program Support Coordinator at Prevent Child Abuse Virginia in Richmond, VA and months later added on the responsibilities of Volunteer Coordinator. Through her amazing education and work in social services, Allison strives to make a difference in the life of a child each day. Jeanine Guidry is a Ph.D. student in the Social and Behavioral Health Program at VCU and an affiliate graduate researcher at the Center for Media+Health. She earned her B.S. and M.S. in Health Sciences from Maastricht University in the Netherlands and her M.P.S. in Strategic Public Relations from George Washington University. Her research interests are focused on the use of social media and mobile technology in health communications, and she has recently been working on several projects looking at the use of  Instagram and Pinterest in the area of health communications. In addition, Guidry is the founder and executive director of Arts in the Alley, a nonprofit organization that paints murals on the walls of the streets and alleys in Richmond. Guidry lives in Richmond with her husband Chris and their two rescue dogs, Lola and Frodo. Doris Harkness has been in a male dominated industrial sales sector for over 22 years. She took over the helm of PACE company, a manufacturers’ representative agency  in 1995 at the unexpected passing of her husband when she was 38.  With two young sons and customers like Philip Morris, Roanoke Cement, and BASF she has had to find a way to rebuild and re-define the company.  Her positive attitude and faith in God has also carried her through her mother’s early onset Alzheimer’s at age 56 and dealing with a son’s grief and addiction.  In the past she has counselled other young widows and children that have suffered the loss of a parent and is a fan of Comfort Zone Camp for grieving children. Grateful for her parents German work ethic, risk-taking and commitment to family, Doris has a wide circle of extended family and friends both professionally and personally that she treasures! Her visit to Ellis Island this year with a cousin reinforced the idea of the “American Dream” when she got to find out more about her 16 year old great grand-mother that immigrated to the US and later sponsored her father.  Besides two grown sons, Doris is happily remarried and has a step-son, daughter in law and 5 month old Grandson Jordan that she calls “Mr. Handsome. “  Bunny Sumner Young- is the proud mother of four-year-old Ryann Grace whom family affectionately calls “Rocky” and Chairwoman of Pawssible Service Dog Connection. Bunny has lived in China and volunteered in Ecuador—experiences which were eye- opening and humbling for her.  She advocates for those who are differently abled: “Growing up with a heart condition, I understand what it is like to have a disability. Being able to empower to independence and show my daughter that being different is beautiful and that she can do anything is the most important thing to me.” Using her Masters Degree in Psychology and Counseling, she started her own consulting company, A Better Place Consulting to educate businesses and organizations the power of creating a positive work environment which leads to employee and client retention. In addition she also teaches cultural sensitivity to law enforcement and correctional officers. She enjoys spending time with her family including her service dog Goose, a 120 pound Great Dane and is a proud Army wife and daughter. She volunteers with Dreamcatcher's Therapeutic Riding, the Alzheimer’s Association, March of Dimes and serves as the Chair of Louisa Lead Share, an active member of TRIAD, on the Extraordinary Women's Exchange Committee and a Member of the Hanover Council on Aging.
