Glamour and Glitz

The Carlsbad Chamber of Commerce held their 2nd Annual Glamour, Glitz, Hats, & Heels event at Sheraton Carlsbad Resort & Spa in late May. An afternoon tea and business social, the event brought together like-minded businesswomen for a day of networking and professional development. Scripps Health Executive Director of External Affairs Susan Taylor, a former award-winning news anchor at NBC, spoke about her experiences in the professional world and her transition from the broadcasting industry. Other highlights included a fashion show curated by Lisa O’Hearn, clothing by cabi clothing, and makeup by Carol Fehr with Mary Kay cosmetics. Event sponsors included The Loftin Firm, P.C., Savvy Women Wealth Management, and WWM Financial.

“Glamour, Glitz, Hats, & Heels provided a forum to encourage women to celebrate being women in business. We felt privileged to be a part of this forum,” said Sue Loftin, Businessperson of the Year Award recipient from the Carlsbad Chamber, and president of The Loftin Firm, P.C. “For the younger women on our staff who attended the event last year, the event provided inspiration for their options in the future.” For more information visit www.carlsbad.org.
