Although POWER is headquartered on Long Island, the organization has members from across the United States and Canada. The new Travel Club was designed to bring these members together so they can experience travel, adventure and networking. The beautiful backdrop of Italy was a perfect location for the club’s first destination, offering attendees the opportunity to collaborate and exchange business ideas, as well as soak up some culture, history and sunshine.
Tonia DeCosimo, founder and president of POWER, traveled with the group, visiting Genoa, Portofino, Rapallo, Milan and Lake Como. Participants included Victoria Wieck, a successful jewelry designer with her own TV show on Shop HQ; Dr. Kara Lynne Maldonado, Founder and CEO of Real Bodies Period, a wellness company offering holistic weight loss management and transformational coaching to restore mind and body; Dr. Kelly Mattone, a prominent health, beauty, fitness and medical industry expert who has appeared in magazines, radio and television; Katherine Sempecos, licensed medical esthetician, medical laser technician and official HR/SR laser trainer and co-owner and operator of PRISM Med Spa in Roslyn, New York; Tsikki Thau, author, meditation and stress management expert who has been a featured expert on numerous TV shows and magazines; Marcie Manfredonia, owner of Nationwide Maintenance, a minority woman-owned business (WBE/MBE) and CBD Natural Live, a CBD oil company; and JoAnn Tripi, a Westbury, New York travel agency with ProTravel Inc., who planned the trip to Italy. Tripi has been in the travel industry for over 30 years and has extensive experience in luxury travel, cruises, honeymoons and adventure vacations.
“I had the chance to visit Italy before, but this trip was different. I am grateful for the time I shared with these POWERFUL women who all come from different geographies, industries and professions,” DeCosimo said. “We have all learned a lot, both professionally and personally. The experience was inspiring, instructive, educational, challenging and adventurous. »
More exciting trips are in the works. Some will be nights and some will be several days. Each event will be different and may include keynote speakers, educational elements and fun activities. The next POWER Travel Club adventure will take place in Naples, Florida on November 17, 2022.
