News From Our CEO, Dr. Robyn
It is not April already, is it? Wow! Well, 2017 has started out with a bang. I just love my SWAT Sisters. We have had some members with life issues and crises and everyone has just shown so much compassion and support. That is what it's all about, right ladies? We celebrated seven years and have continued to grow and become more unified. Thank you to all of those who go the extra mile to make SWAT Networking great.
