Who are you?  

I am Yvonne Thomas, wife, mother, sister, friend and a Breast Cancer Survivor. A number of years ago, I was a marketing ad exec in Springfield, Ohio, which lead me into copy writing and finally into graphic design. I had a successful graphic design company (Off The Page) for many years and I enjoyed designing Identity Packages, brochures, business cards ads and custom invitations, my favorite.

After my battle with cancer, I started making gemstone pendant necklaces. I am in the process of setting up my website on Etsy, so stay tuned.

What excites you about being an Impact 100 Member?

What excites me about being an Impact 100 member is the collaboration of women coming together to give hundreds of thousands of dollars to community agencies in need. We have the ability to make a huge impact with our awards.

Could you provide a brief description of your favorite Impact 100 moment, if you have one? 

Every AAC is my favorite Impact 100 moment. I am moved to tears at the sincerity of the agencies as well as the genuineness of our members. If you want to become involved with women who have a purpose, Impact 100 has a place for you!
