HMG+ is happy to celebrate the powerful women in our lives. Read our stories below!
Karen DiPeri, President at HMG+
“This is Ethel, my beautiful Grandmother. I am truly blessed to know this amazing lady, who just yesterday finished a novel of her life with my Grandfather. I am the person I am because of her; she taught me how to be patient and kind and not take any bull. Many years ago she sent me two quotes which I have framed and hang on wall next to photos of my children. I read these two quotes often and believe she has lived her life this way. Growing up I always felt her strength, her unconditional love for me and my sisters. Although time has taken its toll on her physically, she doesn’t complain, she stays active seeing her friends and organizing card games. And most every day, she shares her thoughts and wisdom with me through email. Yes, my Grandmother emails me. So, on National Women’s Day, I celebrate Ethel- my inspiration.”
Marissa Nani, Marketing and Engagement Manager at HMG+
“This International Women’s Day I recognize my mother, Patricia. She is the most important woman in my life for so many reasons. My mother has been my inspiration for as long as I can remember. She is supportive, strong and selfless. She inspires me to be a better person, be kind, and take time to see other people’s point of views. My mom is the greatest woman I know!”
Ben Naylor, Account Executive at HMG+
I celebrate Hannah, my partner. Thank you for being the woman that makes me want to be a better person and thank you for always making me smile.
Amanda Beni, Client Relations Manager at HMG+
“For International Women’s Day I recognize my mom, Christine. My mom is my best friend, role model and inspiration. She is the most hard working person I know, not only for our family but in her career too. She has taught me to always do right by everyone, and I will forever look up to my mom!”
Olga Palusko, Event Staffing Coordinator at HMG+
“On this International Women’s Day I would love to recognize my mom Tatiana. She is an amazing, kind, always patient, compassionate person. My mom is always full of hope, keeps going no matter what comes her way and never quits. This woman has always been my inspiration and rock. Mom, you are a life changer every single day!”
