WHo is She...

SHE is Visionary is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit social support group comprised of professional and entrepreneurial women based in Columbus, Ohio and the surrounding area. "SHE is Visionary" was founded in January 2016, by Adrienne Ruff.

"SHE is Visionary" is open to women who are interested in women’s issues, volunteerism, mentoring, and networking. SHE combines philanthropy with socializing and networking with the ladies from diverse cultures and backgrounds.

Adrienne was inspired to form SHE is Visionary after hosting a successful vision board brunch workshop January 2016. 

The event sold out in 2 weeks with approximately 80 women in attendance, which consisted of speakers such as Judge Laurel Beatty of Franklin County Common Pleas Court and Columbus City Councilwoman Jaiza Paige and more.

Then Adrienne realized many women share similar, drive, passion and persistence as herself. “There are a lot of women like myself out there, there are a lot of women who can relate to one another, there are a lot of women to learn from, who share similar interests, passion, hardships who have a hustle and drive to want to achieve their dreams and accomplish goals. There are so many mothers and wives who get caught up in the everyday routine of catering to our families, going to work 9-5 and we lose ourselves, we lose our passion, we sometimes forget what our personal dreams are. I wanted to create an organization where we can all come together to connect, to share, to build, to inspire, to motivate one another.”
