JA Circle of Wise Women

The JA Circle of Wise Women was founded in May of 2009 at the home of Janet Davis. It originally started with 10 Founding Members and has since grown to more than 125 women

JA’s Circle of Wise Women believe that Junior Achievement programs are a springboard to show today’s youth their potential for success. Since its inception, the group has raised more than $4 million for Junior Achievement of South Florida.

The group’s signature event is the annual JA World Uncorked – a culinary showcase where guests sample gourmet bites prepared by leading South Florida chefs and sip premier wines,spirits, craft beers and cocktails from local vendors. In addition, the Circle of Wise Women host social gatherings throughout the year and participate in JA-related events, such as the Rosé Soirée.

JA Circle of Wise Women is a vibrant group of women – who are passionate about and dedicated to Junior Achievement’s mission of empowering youth with the knowledge, ability and confidence to navigate their futures, drive our economy, and lead our community.

Brenda Jones Horner...welcome to the JA Circle of Wise Women!

Some fun facts about Brenda, besides being Director of Operations at Consolidated Credit and a JA Board Member:

• She is handy around the house with repairs/improvements. "I enjoy problem solving and a sense of accomplishment when I figure things out."

• One of her proudest accomplishments is having the opportunity to positively impact another's life. "Professionally I get to do this with my clients and staff development. Volunteering at JA, mentoring woman and having therapy dogs (now retired) provides this opportunity through a different window."

• What would she tell her 17-year-old self? "Don't let any one thing, an achievement, a mistake or bad decision define you. You have much more depth. It is the sum of all of these things that make you unique – own who you are"

• Her favorite quote/mantra to live by: "Everything seems to work out the way it is supposed to when you stop forcing an outcome. The end result doesn’t change; accept it is just part of the journey and tomorrow is another day."

Brenda is one of 15 women being pinned to the Circle of Wise Women at the September 30th SOLD OUT Rosé Soirée. There's a waitlist for tickets. www.jasouthflorida.org/rosesoiree
