Organized by the Chamber of Commerce of the Mid-Ohio Valley and
the Parkersburg Women’s Association of the Mid-Ohio Valley

Grand Pointe Conference Center
1500 Grand Central Avenue, Suite 118
Vienna, WV 26105

We are planning a fun day of networking, education and inspiration for women in the Mid-Ohio Valley. 


Women who are passionate about being the best in their careers, making an impact in their community, going above and beyond for the non-profits they volunteer to help, cherishing their friends and families.   

The Women in Leadership Conference is a day to devote to yourself and help you discover your voice. We will peel back your inner curtain to find what makes you happy and how to ensure that spills over into your work and home life. We will dig deeper into the idea of Finding your Voice, especially as we all navigate this new way of communicating after the pandemic.


Women in Leadership Conference Speakers

The Women in Leadership Conference will feature 3 different women speakers throughout the day that will present on a range of different topics on our theme:
“Finding Your Voice”

Ann Gramc
Barefoot in the Sand, Inc

Ann Gramc is a training consultant, speaker, and personal/executive coach. Over the years, she has worked with many of the Fortune 500 companies and other organizations to develop their employees and leaders. 

About 10 years ago, Ann pursued a passion of hers and decided to put a different spin on her expertise.  She was fascinated with learning about happiness and well-being.  After several years of study, she created her own workshops to help people build resilience and increase their happiness.  She also coaches people one on one, to make changes in their lives – and to reach beyond what they thought was possible!  

Ann’s programs help people raise their happiness setpoint, transform limiting beliefs into empowering ones, and take inspired action toward their goals to achieve amazing results in their personal and business lives.

Dr. Priscilla Leavitt, PhD, LPC
Counseling & Wellness Center

Dr. Leavitt is an educator and counseling psychologist who enjoys speaking and training people to live well and successfully. She founded the Counseling and Wellness Center in 1986, and still works there under the new, dynamic management. She has been a faculty member of Oxford Graduate School, a PhD program in Tennesse, since 1989. Her love of training grew when she and a friend started “Partners with Business” and provided consultation and seminars to local businesses. 

Dr. Leavitt’s love of people has led her to focus on helping people improve their relationships at home and work, develop self-confidence, and communicate assertively and compassionately. Finding a way to confront issues, even with difficult people, is often a needed skill that she enjoys teaching.
