Who Is Gf’s (Girlfriends’) Empowering Women?
Wendy Roberts is deliriously passionate about empowering women. She is a bubbly, all-in positive force field of energy whose greatest strength is bringing women together from all walks of life to genuinely feel special. Her platform creates a safe haven for women to share their stories, divine gifts, and genuinely bond as they go through the Girlfriend’s EXPERIENCE with authentic validation to empower women.
She is the owner, founder, and Chief Experience Officer of Gf’s (Girlfriends) Empower Women, an organization that supports and encourages women with the daily challenges of marriage, family and self-discovery. A special guest speaker/expert is invited to engage in a very intimate, non-threatening, positive discussion. It’s a “Girls Night In” that builds an everlasting sisterhood with women who prior to walking through the door were complete strangers.
Fiercely loyal, creative, innovative, and intensely dedicated to making sure every woman who attends her Gf’s experience walks away totally fulfilled about the forthcoming blessings and promises that their respective futures contain, Wendy believes in Paying It Forward. She is actively involved with women who are survivors of domestic violence through her work with Partnership Against Domestic Violence (PADV), teenage mothers and their children (The House of Dawn), and homeless young ladies in the state of Georgia (The Covenant House of Georgia).
Wendy is a proud mom to two teenage boys, and a sassy and supportive wife of 19 years. Her life’s mission is to revive and restore the inner strength and divine spirit of women. She encourages all women to take charge of their own happiness and value while supporting one another by “Spreading The Love” – God’s Love.
Girlfriends’ was fostered through Wendy’s fundraising efforts working with women who raised money for children in the foster care system. She established a non-profit organization in 2007 called Minds In Motion, Inc., which provided educational supplies and created an after-school reading program for disadvantaged children and those in foster care. Wendy’s substantial philanthropic work garnered her an award from the state of Georgia’s Department of Human Services (DHS) while her numerous charitable partners include Angel Tree Ministries, the Gwinnett County Children’s Center, and Sheltering Arms Children’s Center.
Wendy’s love and desire for empowering women began with her passion and dedication for empowering children. She is a former elementary school teacher and a graduate of City College of New York.
