This is an exciting time. We had seven chapters that celebrated SWAT's birthday. 8 years of providing an amazing service to the SW Florida area. It's so rewarding to be part of such an amazing group of women.
SWAT sisters are here for you. Just reach out and let us know that you need some extra support. That is what makes us special, we are a sisterhood. If you need a referral or recommendation, if you need prays or a hug, if you need support, we are here for you. If you need more business, try promoting on our private FB group and make sure you schedule a sit-down with ME!
