I founded We Will because I realized I was not alone in needing a space to be heard and grow. My passion is helping women support women and have a voice at the table. Today I help coordinate our Legislative Coffee Date programming, bring new women to the table, coordinate Springfield trips and work on legislative and political efforts.
Why WE WILL?
We Will used to be Mom+Baby and I started it because when I became a mom I realized even more the woes of being a woman in society and the uphill battle we are fighting. I wanted to help women get involved in the legislative process and be a part of the change.
What matters to you in the Community?
I am passionate about many things but my main 3 initiatives and causes are raising minimum wage, having family leave for all, and protecting a woman's right to choose.
Who are you professionally?
I co-own The Insurance People with Carmen Londono. We sell all your favorite boring things. My personal specialty is health insurance. I have ridden the roller coaster of the Affordable Care Act and am passionate about helping people have access to healthcare.
Tell us more about your personal life?
I am married to the amazing Roger Cady! We had 4 kids in 4 years and love living life to the fullest. Our kiddos Annaliese, Miriam, Owen and Jackson keep us on our toes. We are big on eating and thankfully my hobby is cooking. I love making all sorts of things but am known for my mac & cheese and amazing crudite platters. I am athletic, love working out, and playing soccer. I am a huge fan of beer and Roger and I have traveled the country pre and post kiddos sampling all sorts of amazing beers. We like to work hard and play hard.
What is your Fun Fact about you?
I was a vegan for years, then vegetarian, now pescatarian.
