Due to the recent news coverage regarding the influx of children crossing into the United States, we wanted to have a conversation about the misconceptions of the immigration debate and the housing of children in the Arizona town of Nogales. This episode we welcome Lisette Flores, J.D. an alumnus of Arizona State University and long standing community volunteer. Flores has practiced law for nearly ten years having shifted her focus, a little over two years ago to serving as an immigration attorney. As shared in our conversation with Flores her passion for her work comes from her strong family foundation. Shown even more as Flores waits to welcome her first child into her family. Schmooze is excited to document this moment as Flores reflects on her work in Arizona at a critical time in her life as she readies to take on her next venture – motherhood.
Featured in this episode are two trailblazing women who’ve dedicated ample time in the past few years “re-imagining Arizona” and its arts and culture community.

In this episode, we sit down to have a conversation with our moms.

We are delighted to share these two women with you as they are nothing short of remarkable.
Tune in as Sara Presler J.D., CEO of the Foundation for Arizona Women, reflects on being a young professional, her experience as both the first youngest and female mayor of Flagstaff, Arizona and how the women of Arizona are critical to our state.
*Presler offered the following correction to the interview when discussing poverty differences between women with less than a high school diploma and women with a college degree. “The poverty rate among women with less than a high school diploma is six times higher than a woman who earns a Bachelor’s degree.” The information in the interview about this topic should reflect the above quote.
Listen as three Phoenix entrepreneurs Ebone Johnson, of Rejected Thrifts, Gerri Hormel, who started Almost There Foster Care and Jill Bernstein of Jill Bernstein Creative Services, share their experience about starting a business.
