MEMBER SPOTLIGHT – 4th Quarter 2013
We are proud to honor our GPS members in this Spotlight Section of our website. These women exemplify the spirit of Give First…Share Always in everything they do. They are a shining example to their business associates and Chapter members. They give of themselves unselfishly and we are recognizing them in this section to let them know they are so appreciated. They help to create the positive energy that people attending our meetings call the “GPS experience.” That energy attracts like-minded woman that thrive in that environment and from there we create all the programs and events that help us all in our business, personal and everyday lives. Ladies, this tribute is for you..and very well deserved.
“All that you are is all around you.”

It is with great pleasure that the Glendale Evening Chapter announces Eva Obregon as our Member SpotLight for the 4th Quarter of 2013. Eva embraces the GPS motto “Give First~Share Always” on a daily basis. She enjoys giving her time to ensure that women are informed about their finances by providing them with a plan and solutions. She also enjoys working with young girls/women to prepare them for the working world by showing them how to dress, how to answer interview questions and help them to be aware of their body language. Eva always makes time for everyone no matter how busy she might be during her day. It is great to have a GPS member that is willing to put others needs above her own. She is willing to take on challenging projects such as being a part of the GPS Education Series. Eva is also one of our GPS Sponsors. Thank you Eva for all you do and continue to do to make our evening Chapter a warm and welcoming. Vonnie Warr, Tupperware, Co-Leader and Barb Jennings, Sweet Confections, Owner, Co-Leader

North Phoenix Chapter
As leader of the North Phoenix GPS Chapter I have the honor to know and work with some of the most creative, loving and giving women in the world. GPS ladies are truly amazing and their giving first and sharing always attitude is what exemplify a GPS Gal from others. It’s what I call the ninth “Wonder of the World.
I find it incredible that two ladies that don’t know each other, from opposite parts of the country, totally different backgrounds, different family situations meet in GPS and for all practical purposes could be deemed twins (well at least sisters). The two ladies that I am referring to from our chapter are Marie Clancy and Debra Quandt.
First ladies, I must start with an apology to both of you. I didn’t realize until I started trying to decide who would be our chapters nominee for this quarter Spotlight how much I have depended on you and “taken you for granted”
You are always there to help …a phone call; a quick email, a note of need in the agenda (you actually read the agenda) is all it takes. You are my 1st responders.
Every meeting we count on you in so many ways. You not only attend the meetings, but you live the principles of GPS. Things happen like a last minute cancellation and it is never a problem. It’s just a call to one of you. And what can seem like an overwhelming project, such as a GPS fundraiser, you whittle down to a nothing and make me wonder why I thought it was such a big deal.
But what I find incredible is your “Sisters by Choice” attitude. You are giving, loving and caring people. It’s easy to love someone you like and care for and you ladies show your love and care to all of the members/guests and make each member feel welcome and wanted. You see no one as competition – only a GPS sister.
You come from different parts of the country. Deborah comes from the Midwest (Nebraska). Marie is from a metro area of California. The businesses they represent are different. Deborah represents Insphere Health Solutions – designing and helping others meet their financial and health needs. Marie represents three companies however she loves letting others know she cares and does so through “Send Out Cards.” Their family statistics are different – Deborah was the oldest of 5 children and while they had the smallest home it was the gathering home for her extended family. A mom of three girls she feels her reward is two granddaughters.
Marie was the only girl in her household with three boisterous and bossy brothers, and a big extended family that she looked forward to see each year when they got together at the grandparents. How come she’s so quiet? Marie Is married and has two grown sons.
Different yes, but you are what make the GPS Networking for women the unique organization it is. You are what I refer to as the “9th Wonders of the World and you are “GPS Sister by Choice”
I want to thank you for making me remember to laugh. You helped me keep my sanity and perspective when the going seemed a little tough. And I will always remember and appreciate your willing and serving attitude. It is a pleasure to have you as members of our chapter and it is an honor to nominate you as North Phoenix GPS Spotlight Members.
Northwest Valley Chapter
Eva has been in our northwest valley chapter since the beginning of our start, a year ago last May. I have chosen Eva as our spotlight member because of her unending smile. She is always in a happy mood and we all get so entranced just listening to her talk, telling us about some of her motherly ways to raise her daughters.
Eva has gone through some amazing life trials and has always managed to land on top. She is strong willed and knows what she want and always has a can do attitude.
She has opened her doors to our chapter meetings since we needed a new part time venue. She always had coffee and bottled water for us at every meeting. She is one of a,kind. She is alway a sponsor for GPS with her business Edward Jones. We love you Eva!
Fashion Director with Park Lane www.myparklane.com/switthuhn 623-640-7631 email@example.com
Sharon Witthuhn is a woman who has an inner strength, a giving spirit and shows kindness to others which is why I am nominating her for the GPS Chapter Spotlight for the Peoria GPS group.
Sharon’s inner strength has kept her through the difficult times in her life and yet she has a sweet and kind way about her that you are just drawn to. Her smile lights up the room and she is quick to share all she knows about the fashionable jewelry that she sells and how to best show case each piece along with general fashion tips that she has learned.
I have seen her go out of her way to help a fellow GPS member promote their business or to team up together with others in joint ventures where both ladies complement each other’s businesses, which is a winning combination for them and their customers. I feel that we are lucky to have Sharon in our Peoria chapter.
Anna Hoebing Phone: 480-286-6295 firstname.lastname@example.org
For our 4th quarter spotlight member, Bonnie & I would like to nominate Anna Hoebing. Anna is a passionate insurance representative at Inphere Solutions. She is very knowledgeable in all aspects of her business. When Bonnie and I first met Anna, we both agreed that she lights up the room with her warmth and contagious smile. She is very give-first and is able to lend a helping hand to the leadership team as well as its members. She is a real assist to our meeting. We both are excited to nominate Anna and watch her succeed in her new business and her new marriage. Thank you Anna for being so Give- First, Share-Always!
