Hi, I’m Dina! Welcome to Westchester Woman and thanks for being here ❤️

I started Westchester Woman in 2015 to help inform, entertain, and empower women (and everyone else) in Westchester and the Tri-State area by sharing things I love and am learning.

My hope is that it might help you do the same or at least entertain you in some way, shape, or form.

That way we can all be like…

(Click for sound… it’s so much better with sound)

… when we celebrate how awesome our lives are/going to be and how much we’ve grown/are growing.

This blog is about joy, the beauty of humanity, and (in the words of Jimmy Lee) gettin’ better baby.

That is beautiful human Jimmy LeeNeed a pick me up? Watch this video and let Jimmy Lee give you a pep talk.

Like Jimmy Lee, I hope Westchester Woman will help inspire you to be yourself and fulfill all of your wildest dreams.
