Two Phenomenal Women. Both Living Their Best Lives

Women of the Piedmont/Triad are in for a double dose of female empowerment this fall. First, we will have an opportunity to hear from a renowned therapist and relationship guru, Nedra Tawwab, who will share valuable insights to help us all live our best lives. Second, we will see one of our community’s most inspiring female leaders, Winston-Salem Police Department Chief Catrina Thompson, receive the seventh annual Best Life Leadership award.

Both opportunities are part of the Living Your Best Life Speaker Series, hosted by Trellis Supportive Care. “We named this event Living Your Best Life to help spotlight our mission of helping people live fully and comfortably, making the most of every day,” shared Linda Darden, President and CEO of Trellis Supportive Care. “Each year I am thrilled with the level of expertise we bring to the region, and I’m eager to gain insights from this year’s speaker, Nedra Tawwab,” she continued.

Are you ready to start taking care of YOU?

If you are a people pleaser or have trouble setting boundaries in relationships, work life, or family life, you may find much of what Nedra Tawwab has to say life-changing. Her presentation will aim to help us all start building and maintaining better, healthier relationships.

Tawwab has practiced therapy for 14 years and is the founder and owner of the group therapy practice Kaleidoscope Counseling, based in Charlotte, NC. Her best-selling book: Set Boundaries, Find Peace – A Guide to Reclaiming Yourself, will be the focus of her presentation. Her philosophy is that a lack of boundaries and assertiveness underlie most relationship issues, and her gift is helping people create healthy relationships with themselves and others. She will share simple yet powerful tools to help – as the title of her book suggests – find peace and reclaim yourself.

The Best Life Leadership Award Goes To…

Each year as part of the Living Your Best Life event, Trellis presents the Best Life Leadership Award to a community leader who exemplifies what it means to elevate the possibilities and potential of lives in the Triad. Winston-Salem Police Chief Thompson’s steadfast leadership and unyielding commitment to the community make her an ideal candidate for this recognition. By her example, she inspires others to make a positive difference in the world. As a leader, community volunteer, and advocate in the nonprofit world, she has worked to create a community that is indeed a better place to live your best life.

Funds raised directly benefit patients and families receiving hospice care. “We are thrilled to be back in person this year and look forward to the luncheon as a way to connect with the community,” shared Rosalie Bland, Director of Donor Relations. “We are also thrilled for the opportunity to present our Best Life Leadership Award to Catrina Thompson,” added Rosalie. Presenting the award to Chief Thompson will be last year’s award recipient, Wanda Starke.

The event is set for October 20 at the Benton Convention Center. Please visit for additional information and registration – or contact Jordan Helms with Trellis Supportive Care at (336) 331-1323 or by email at to reserve your seat!
