NKY Chamber Women’s Initiative presents a summer Professional Series event on women’s wellness


On August 3, the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce Women’s Initiative will host its annual summer Professional Series event — with a healthy twist.

Featuring panelists from the American Heart Association, Mayfield Clinic and HerMD, WI Body + Mind Professional Series: Wellness in the Workplace will focus on women being advocates for their health and physical wellness in the workplace.

WI Body + Mind Professional Series: Wellness in the Workplace will be held at Gateway Community and Technical College’s Edgewood campus (790 Thomas More Pkwy Edgewood) from 8-10 a.m.

Panelists Amanda Changet, Community Impact Director, American Heart Association, Jenna Till, PT, DPT, Mayfield Clinic and Michelle Wallace, NP, HerMD will share best practices, address ways to increase concentration and productivity and share tools for reducing stress.

“Wellness – both physical and mental – remains a critical factor in the workplace,” says Julie Leppo, Vice President, Banker at J.P. Morgan Private Bank and Women’s Initiative Professional Series Committee Vice Chair. “In bringing these three well-versed experts together, it’s our hope to provide people with tangible, usable insights they can utilize to improve their working experience. While everyone’s individual experience is unique, this panel will provide tools that are universal in their usefulness.”
