We are women sharing our stories that are full of successes, failure, growth, healing, exploration and perseverance.
The Hey Girl! Conference creates space and opportunity for women to belong by providing a community of women who bare their most vulnerable thoughts and experiences. In sharing ourselves we cultivate healing from within and for others that provides the foundation for us to be our authentic selves.
