VdorA , a woman’s fashion boutique and pet emporium located at 207 Main Str., Murphys, was designed for women to have a place to relax, find clothes they feel good in as well as dress their beloved pets. I saw a need for a store to offer personal shopping assistance, to have a variety of unique clothes for all sizes and shapes (we offer a fabulous PLUS size dept.) and have a wide selection of bling accessories to match.
I am passionate about VdorA which is a perfect fit for me so I could live primarily in the foothills. After years of high stress jobs such as 23 years selling real estate, a counselor in the 1st Rape Crisis Center, a Probation Officer and a College Instructor, I was ready for a fun filled job…..so therefore VdorA was created.

My 20-year history in public relations helps me understand the various needs and issues of all types of clients. I have worked client side for major brands like HP and Pioneer, agency side for companies ranging from Microsoft to WebTrends, iStockphoto and Getty Images. I have helped start-ups make global names for themselves and am very experienced at managing international PR teams and budgets. In 2006, I founded Vibrance PR, a virtual team of public relations experts who have left world-leading agencies and global brand leaders to provide top-notch PR counsel to clients that inspire our passions. Our key industry expertise is in technology, imaging, and social networking, but we also include practitioners very experienced in consumer PR and branding to help gain companies the widest possible profiles. Today, I specialize in launching disruptive, fast-paced companies and their products using creative storytelling and powerful media relations skills. As a former NBC affiliate news producer, I also have a knack for helping identify news that will be visually compelling to the rest of the world. At Weber Shandwick, I managed a virtual team bringing national visibility to tech, consumer electronics and business to business customers. Our office won numerous local and national awards. Prior to Weber Shandwick, I headed up Hewlett-Packard’s first small business consumer press campaign and handled public relations for multiple divisions, including high-end inkjet printers and desktop scanners. I started in consumer electronics at Pioneer Electronics’ car audio division, gaining national exposure including, “Today,” Rolling Stone, and CBS Radio. Specialties imaging, art, social networking, e-commerce, software, computers and peripherals, printers, car audio, consumer electronics, semiconductors and portable power. Agency, corporate and non-profit experience.

About the Speaker: Jennifer K. Crittenden, Author of The Discreet Guide for Executive Women: How to Work Well with Men (and Other Difficulties)
Raised on a farm in southern Indiana by an idealist professor and a feminist homemaker, and following language and film studies in Europe, Jennifer was an unlikely candidate to graduate with an MBA from the Kelley School of Business and enter corporate America. To her surprise, she excelled in her new world and spent the next twenty years building a scintillating career, rising from Financial Analyst to Chief Financial Officer, working for big pharma and biotech companies in the US, Europe, and the UK. She also saw other women enter this male-dominated world and stumble, lose their upward mobility, get discouraged, and drop out. Jennifer was disappointed to find herself too often the only woman in the boardroom and the executive suite. A devoted manager, she mentored a number of young women and learned that honest, straight talk was the best way to communicate the do’s and don’ts of working with men. Now she has now come full circle, returning from numbers and technology, to her love of words by putting her passion to print to extend a helping hand to all aspiring business women.

Bonnie is a fabulous, experienced and practical coach. I don’t even recognize the person I used to be as a result of Bonnie’s guidance. I was in a career that lacked luster and life purpose and as a result of her guided processes and learning modules, I have now decided on a new career path that I love and look forward to each day with enthusiasm. I have let go of the past and relationships that no longer fit, so that the new dreams and possibilities can come into my life. My income now has unlimited potential and I have confidence about taking actions that will make me successful. I feel that Bonnie genuinely cares and listens and goes the extra mile in doing things for her clients that make a difference. Bonnie is knowledgeable in many areas and she does not hesitate to share what she knows and what might be helpful. If you are looking for profound change and a mindset to create wealth, then Bonnie is the coach for you.

I’ve really enjoyed my coaching sessions with Bonnie. She’s been understanding, compassionate and enthusiastic in helping me to see things that I was not seeing. In addition, she’s been unbelievably generous with resources, ideas and suggestions. Bonnie created a safe atmosphere to grow in yet she’s provided structure and accountability as well. It’s truly a pleasure working with her and the results have been great.
