Lorraine Oberholtzer

Consulting Dietitian

When I looked around the room and heard the stories of the women in attendance, I truly felt an instant bond-these women emitted such a warmth, strength and resilience! They were overcomers and the type to press-on despite the odds. Even after the better part of two decades in the food industry, I felt I learned something from each woman in attendance that night.
