Editor's Letter

Leading by Example

The thing I admire most about the business leaders featured in this issue is that they are good at their jobs. Really, they are just good at life. They are moms who love their children as well as community advocates who embrace the region. They kick ass in their careers. They also just happen to be women.

Julia Ketcham Corbett, managing partner at Blethen, Gage and Krause, lives by her motto, Get Sh*# Done…and she does. Tania Cordes loves a good challenge, and boy did she find one when she took over the iconic Kato Ballroom. And from a teeny tiny town seemingly in the middle of nowhere, Joline Pearson is making an international footprint and carrying on her mom’s legacy with The Silhouette.

Please enjoy the stories of these business and community leaders. These women.

So, happy reading…and hopefully, learning!
