Redefining Success: Women's Unique Paths Saunders, Melody Thamar (Photographer)

Description on Amazon

Dynamic stories of twenty-four remarkable women who discuss their sometimes bumpy paths to success. To them, success is highly personal and does not always match societys definition -- money, prestige, and power. Warm and revealing profiles. Beautiful black and white photographs of each woman.

 I was hired by Sybil Publicationss to work with Nancy Johnson (author), to travel throughout Oregon to photograph each of the twenty-four incredibly interesting women whose 

stories appear in this book.

Thanks to my best friend and dad, Dick, and my dear friends Adrianne and Matthew, a great adventure was had by all.
