First Lady of Texas Cecilia Abbott believes women play an important role in the future of Texas.

Instead of hosting a party or popping  open a bottle of champagne, I am reflecting on the 4,000+ days I’ve spent on the work (and pleasures) of informing, inspiring and connecting successful women via this publication.
