Today, I had the distinct honor of having the opportunity to interview the CEO of the Fort Bend Women's Center CEO Vita Goodell and the Chief Programs Officer, Josh Brown.
Before we really begin, I hope you take the opportunity to attend the Healing and Hope luncheon at the Houston Marriott in Sugar Land, Texas! It will also be hosted during October, which is Domestic Violence Awareness Month!
