Third Annual 425 Women to Watch

On April 4, a restaurant entrepreneur, a styling coach, a radio host, a telecommunications powerhouse, and a leadership developer will inspire, empower, and challenge us all to be our best selves.

For a couple hours, we’re inviting you to unwind, have a treat, connect with peers, and feel inspired by the speakers at our 425 Women to Watch event at the Meydenbauer Center with emcee Amity Addrisi from King 5.

We certainly couldn’t do this without our amazing sponsors who believed in this vision to lift women up and showcase their impact on the community. Women to Watch is presented by Kitsap Bank, Redmond Town Center, Lake Chelan Chamber of Commerce, Comcast, A to Z Regenerative Medicine, Tree, Margaret O’Leary, J. Lewis Jewelry, and Gene Juarez.

Buy your tickets now, and use #425WomentoWatch to let us know you’re coming.

Without further ado, here are the 2018 Women to Watch.

Ally Svenson, Co-Founder of MODPizza

“If we’re going to invest in the next decade-plus in building this business that is so worthy of building and has such great potential, what will it take to justify that investment?”




Brooke Fox, Radio Host

“What I love hearing is when we have moms with teenagers, and they’re not getting along with their kid, and (the show) gives them the one space where they both can share a common interest.”



Kim Peterson, Styling Coach

“It just takes one person to stop and pause for you and believe in you. I’m so grateful for those few people who have literally stopped and paused for me.”




Claire Durrell, Founder of LEAD

“Your kid is going to come out much more confident and their self-awareness is going to be heightened, and they’ll tap into emotions they didn’t know were there.”



Amy Lynch, Regional Vice President of Comcast

“I consider experience and learning another form of payment. It’s something I firmly believe in, and it’s something I don’t think people do enough.”
