Everybody has a gift and it’s our mission to use out gift to impact the world for the better.
Krista Gawronski attended a women’s conference in San Francisco where Oprah Winfrey was the keynote speaker. Oprah spoke with such impact and purpose that it planted a seed in Krista’s mind on how she could use her gifts to give back to the community. One day, Krista’s friend lost her husband suddenly, so Krista banded the community together to help support this fellow mom. Little did she know, but that community gathering was the spark she needed to launch The Petaluma Fabulous Women charity and use her gifts to impact the world for the better.
