Let’s face it, all women are superheroes. We wear lots of capes (mother, daughter, wife, friend, and caregiver, just to name a few), but the one cape that most often gets left in the closet is our “self” cape. If we forget to focus on ourselves, our superpowers get worn down, and then we can’t be a superhero for others. It’s time to get in touch with your inner superhero! That’s why the Junior Service Club of Edwardsville/Glen Carbon’s newest committee, JSC University, is planning a day focusing on women’s health & wellness on Sunday, April 10, 2016, from 1:00 – 4:00 at the LeClaire Room at N.O. Nelson.
The Women’s Wellness Expo will offer women a chance to learn the latest in health and wellness presented by specialists in the community. The event is free and will offer informational booths where you can gather health and wellness information, talk with experts, attend interactive breakout sessions featuring topics important to women, win attendance prizes, and enjoy a cash bar.

Loretta Goebel - Keynote Speaker
A powerful and dynamic speaker, Loretta Goebel mesmerizes her audience with her straightforward approach. She conveys her personal message of strength, hope, love and faith with a unique, down-to-earth style that draws in every member of her audience.
Loretta grew up as one of four sisters in a close-knit traditional Midwestern home. After high school, she moved to Chicago where she earned a certificate in public relations, working first at a travel agency, later in banking and eventually becoming the convention services manager at a large Hyatt Hotel in the Chicago area. A few years later, she married, had two children, and took on the role she felt she was born for – that of a stay-at-home wife and mother, providing the best possible environment for her family.
But her seemingly perfect life took a different turn when a common strep germ invaded her system, and she soon found herself at death’s door. She made it through – though not without consequences – there was a price to pay. But Loretta’s strong spirit, determination and love of life did not let that stop her. She simply found a “new normal” and got on with her life. Her devastating, yet uplifting personal story inspires everyone who has had a setback of any kind to get back to the business of living.
