"Nancy La Vigne's story very much resonated with me as she explored her various aptitudes and strengths throughout her educational journey and built upon each experience to construct an inspiring and rewarding career. Thanks again for sharing this book with me. I look forward to reading it to my 20 month old daughter so that she too may begin to map her own story!"

"All of us have our own stories to tell; how and where we started, our accomplishments, our challenges, our most successful dreams realized. This book tells us how we can use maps, analysis and geographic information systems (GIS) to motivate and develop our lives and others. The women's stories in this book definitely encourage us to succeed as individuals and as WON members. I can so identify with their stories! WON members and all women can and do make a difference in our government. We are the force!"

--Bronwyn Asplund-Walsh, President, National Association of Counties Women (WON)
