There is a potential heroine in everywoman. She is the leading lady in her own life story on a journey that begins at birth and continues throughout her lifetime.

--Jean Shinoda Bolen, Goddesses in EveryWoman

Message from the Founder--Elyse Hope Killoran

This message is meant for any woman who has found her way to Women's U. and who resonates with the opportunity to learn, grow, connect and prosper in concert with other women:

I see you as a modern-day heroine.


A heroine is any woman who lives her life as an active choicemaker. Heroines know that there are no easy answers and no guarantees in life--only a multitude of options from which to choose. A heroic woman does her best to choose wisely --asking the right questions, gathering information and considering both the logic of her mind and the wisdom of her heart.

A heroine appreciates opportunities to expand her knowledge and to integrate new tools and strategies into her problem-solving repertoire. A heroine takes full responsibility for her own life and she sees "responsibility"--the ability to choose her own responses--as the greatest gift that she possesses.

Where are you along the heroine's path?

Have you chosen: to leave a relationship that is not supporting you? To "downshift" so that you'll have more time with your family? To follow your heart and start your own business? To simply begin saying "no" to people who are draining you? It takes tremendous courage for us to admit: that our jobs are not working for us anymore; that we can't please everybody all of the time; that deep inside we know that we could live a more extraordinary life if we stopped holding ourselves back and if we gave ourselves permission to shine. When you feel strongly pulled to leave your comfort zone in order to take a stand for something that you believe in, you are fulfilling the role of heroine--and you should honor yourself as such.

The heroine's path is a journey through the unknown. As we face unexpected challenges and opportunities, our fondest wish is to join forces with a guide or mentor who has traveled the path before. We appreciate her wisdom and her expertise. And, being relational creatures, we appreciate having a few trustworthy companions with whom we can share our adventure. This is exactly what you'll find at Women's U.

Whether the adventure that lies ahead of you is of a business, personal, financial or relationship nature, Women's U. offers opportunities for you to learn, grow, connect and prosper and to become better equipped for the journey that lies ahead. You can make the most of your adventure by embracing the heroine inside of you!

Wishing you love, light and laughter,

"The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears,
the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair.
The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes,
because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides."
- Audrey Hepburn
