How we began:

Andrea and Staci first met about 15 years ago while beginning their journey in the therapeutic treatment industry.  Although we hate to admit it’s been that long ago, we’d like to think that we, and our industry, have aged gracefully.

Recently at a women’s luncheon we sat around this beautiful room decorated to celebrate the women in our industry.  Almost simultaneously we said to one another “Wouldn’t it be great if every woman in our industry had a chance to meet, share experiences, and receive the recognition they deserve?”  Since there wasn’t a group designed to facilitate that need, we decided to create one.  Evolving Women was born. During this time of creation….we knew we also needed to incorporate some diversity, so we invited Deborah Thomason to partner with us! She has been an amazing asset to us in the beginning to help ensure we were on the right track!

Join us!  It’s not just “doing lunch”.  It’s an opportunity to connect about our careers and concerns.  You’ll meet some of the brightest minds in the business. (And you might see some pretty great shoes too!!)





I have been in the therapuetic treatment industry for most of my career. I began as a receptionist and worked my way up to become Director of Admissions and Marketing for a few programs. The exciting part  is I was able to work in positions such as insurance billing, front office, accounting, website design and database management so my experience is diverse. I was given a huge opportunity at every job I have had and was able to grow personally and professionally through excellent directors, bosses and co-workers! I am excited about starting this association as I have met some amazing women throughout my career and hope to meet many more through this new venture!



I have been a member of the Redcliff Ascent Management team since 1996.  My career with the Ascent organization has been dynamic and varied and has included the roles of Line Staff supervisor, Program Director, Liaison Communication Specialist, Assistant Executive Director and for the past 10 years, I have had the great opportunity to be the Executive Director of Redcliff Ascent.  I am honored to partner with Staci and Deb  in creating an association wherein women can learn from each other and support one another as they create their own path in the therapeutic treatment industry.
