FocusME provides a space for working women to support each other with connections and accountability as each sets her own professional and personal goals. New groups form every quarter and meet once per week for 7 weeks. Each is led by a facilitator whose role is to organize the group around weekly themes and to push each participant to achieve what she sets forth.

Our next session will be led by Dorene MacVey. For 25 years Dorene served as a corporate executive at a Fortune 500 company holding senior leadership positions in Organizational Development, Human Resource Management and Ethics and Compliance Operations. In addition to her functional responsibilities she has coached and mentored hundreds of executives, leaders and young professionals, always striving to be a trusted confidant, influential coach and developer of talent in the workplace. Her professional experience combined with her passion for helping others be the best they can be – in and out of the workplace – is the origin of ithrive31®. As a wife, mother, and professional executive, she knows all too well how hard it is to balance the many roles and expectations there are in life. Dorene is committed to helping people find balance, confidence, and the courage to live a thriving life – in their homes, in the workplaces and in their communities. 

FocusME begins meeting Monday, April 9th from 11:30am to 1pm at The Iowa Center's offices and will meet weekly until May 21st.

The cost to participate is $99 and includes 8 weeks of meetings. Register by e-mailing Amy Hutchins at and then click the DONATE button to pay now!
