While serving in the Army as a paralegal, Christine (Carr) Leahy, M.S. ’02, took the stage many times as a performer at military events that included the nation’s top brass.

Now she takes the microphone with a message to women who are hurting, abused, depressed, and broken-hearted. As the founder and CEO of Women Stand Up! International, Leahy is preaching the message of “I am enough” to women around the world. Her faith-based nonprofit organization is driven by the goal of restoring and repurposing the hearts and minds of women.

Its mantra is simple but powerful: “We are women helping women in crisis.”
