Meet Our Mentors

The NAWBO-OC Mentor team is comprised of an esteemed group of Orange County business women.  Hand selected, our mentors represent a diversity of disciplines. They are executive coaches, business consultants, company CEOs’ and executives.  The industries they represent range from sales and marketing to manufacturing to health care to finance and accounting.  As diverse as these women are, they are connected by the threads of success and a desire to help other business women create strength and sustainability in their businesses.  NAWBO Mentors volunteer their time to participate in the Mentoring program, and many have been with the program for 6 or more years.

Whether you are looking to join the mentoring program or to select a coach or service provider for hire, we highly recommend these women as mentors, coaches and service providers.
