July 20, 2023 Women Excelling Monthly Meeting

Join the Women Excelling chapter of the American Business Women’s Association for our monthly networking meeting and a presentation by special guest speaker Kirsten Haas, Executive Director at Girls on the Run Berks County, Reading, Pennsylvania, who will speak on a topic of interest to businesswomen in the community.

Kirsten’s professional journey continues to take her in new and exciting directions! After a 20-year career in the specialty steel industry with experience in sales, customer service, commercial operations management, and relationship building, she put her skills to work in the non-profit sector working for community organizations. Throughout her career, she utilized precise, efficient verbal and written communication to fulfill the organization’s broad goals as well as to analyze, create, and document new processes. She is an independent thinker and creative problem-solver who places a high value on relationships. She also indulges in the joy and challenges of creative writing and running (for fun, not while being chased).

Kirsten serves as Managing Editor and Contributing Writer for W2W Magazine, the official publication of Berks Women2Women (a program of the Greater Reading Chamber Alliance). She also serves as Executive Director for Girls on the Run Berks County.  She’s also a Freelance Blogger/Editor/Writer for a “slice of life” blog about various topics, some serious but mostly not (https://witticismsobservationsotherfoolishness.wordpress.com/).

Kirsten has a BA in Political Science and an MMC in Mass Communications, both from the University of Georgia.  She is a native of Hawaii; grew up in Stone Mountain, Georgia; and currently resides in Southeastern PA.
