Welcome to The ABWA Oceanside Charter Chapter

Creating Balance - Juggling Multiple Roles in Today's Fast Paced World

In the United States we work more hours and take fewer vacations than any other country. We add more pressure as we are always available with our electronic devices.  Add parenting and caring for aging parents to our daily job, and our responsibilities become never ending. This juggling act can create personal and work stress interfering with relationships at work or home, and can lead to burn out, depression, or other health ailments.  Learn how to assess your balance and set realistic boundaries for improved personal performance.

Linda Meeuwenberg, RDH, M.A., M.A., F.A.D.I.A., is an award-winning speaker, educator, entrepreneur, and best-selling author.   As Professor Emeritus of Ferris State University in Michigan and as C.E.O. of Professional Development Association, Inc., she has delivered hundreds of seminars in the U.S. and abroad, has served on numerous advisory boards, and is a Key Opinion Leader in her profession. In addition to writing children’s books, Linda has published articles for lay and professional audiences, is a contributing author to two trade journals, and co-authored three collaborative books. Linda received two national awards for her volunteer projects and was recognized as a Woman of Excellence by the Melbourne Regional Chamber. Recently, Linda was the recipient of the Swan D. Knowles Achievement Award.

On a personal level, Linda has raised a special needs child as a single parent and later cared for her aging parents while dealing with an occupational injury. Please join us on Tuesday, January 23 for Linda’s interactive workshop ready for immediate implementation to improve your personal and professional life!

We are a diverse group of individuals who have the opportunity to come together for networking, professional development and fun!  No matter what our backgrounds or experiences are, we have the opportunity to spend time together each month enjoying good company, a good meal and excellent speakers!  As working and retired professionals, our schedules often allow us little time for ourselves.  Through membership in ABWA, we have the opportunity to join other women and spend time as the saying goes, “doing something today that our future self will thank us for” (Anonymous).
