Q & A 

What is your favorite thing about being in AOII? The other women! AOII is so diverse and is full of amazing, intelligent women who are passionate about AOII and everything else they’re involved in. AOII is home to 80 of the sweetest souls I’ve ever met. 

Which of the places that you've traveled is your favorite? Munich, Germany. Bavaria is a winter wonderland at Christmas-time.
