Be sure to read all the evo posts: Working TogetherLetting GoIgnite, UnpluggedJoyMom It Forward Moment

I couldn’t write just one post about it, so I’ve broken it down by topic organized by the above. Enjoy!


Evo Conference is the Evolution of Woemn in Social Media. It takes place annually in Park City at the Canyons resport. I have been attending this conference every yeard they have held it. The conference is put on by two of my heros, Jyl Pattee and Rachel Herscher.

Jyl is the founder of Mom it Forward.

Rachel is the founder of Today’s Mama, that stared out as a publishing company that created a handbook for Utah Mamas and has expended to be a website and blog.

Attending this conference is a highlight of my year. Learning with others in an industry (that I love)  gives a snese of community.

It is tha very supportive group of women and was very lucky this year to bolunteer this year. The first year I attended I hwas pregnant and wasn’t feeling so well, the second year I had a 6 month old baby and had my family up there.

This was my first year staying at the Canyons with out my family there.

Being a part of a volunteer team and working shoulder to shoulder with people you love and respect is a very wonderful expereinece that bonds you to peple. Jyl’s team was headed up by Jill Greenlaw and I worked with Cari Reynolds with sponsors and making sure they were taken care of.

We spent Wednesday from about noon until 9:00 PM working to unload shipping boxes, checking inventory and assigning to the different suites. Then we were able to get the swag bag tables set up so that we could assamle about 400 swag bags. Carissa Rogers and I were able to work together in a little friendly competition to streamline the apper material  It was good to work together and see all the generous items the sponsors gave us.
