Quota has been like an open door that invited me into a room filled with opportunity and wonderful, talented, professional women who all wish to make a difference in our community.

I’ve been a member of Quota Baton Rouge for 38 years and have served as president. I’m so proud – and grateful – to be part of a dedicated group of women who have helped so many in our community in so many ways. The greatest benefit for me has been the friendships I’ve made. Quota members are smart, caring and accomplished women. We encourage and support each other through good times and bad. And we make sure to have fun together too!
