Morphmom Conferences
Girl's Trip...With A Twist

Join us for a full day and night with the “Morphmom” community as you take time out to reflect on your “next step”: 

Learning (panels, speakers, book signings, branding),

Living (opportunities, cocktails, pop-ups and shopping)

Laying the groundwork to launch whatever’s next (networking, relationship building and meeting new friends).

We devote most of our time to helping others, but it is now time to get away and help ourselves!  It is our turn to spend time where we can learn & laugh, shop & sip, make new friends and enjoy a little bit of the great outdoors!

Experience two days of inspiration, guidance and community. From cocktails, to book signings, to panels to shopping, to table reads to wine tasting to comedy and more... where speakers share their journeys and the steps they took to get where they are today.   Where you will meet other like-minded women and immediately feel part of a community, a movement devoted to helping others discover and pursue their next step. An event where fellow "morphmoms" share not just the positive experiences, but the challenges, failures and obstacles they faced along the way. Be empowered -- not afraid -- to go beyond your comfort zone and find “What’s Next!”
