)-- Cleveland-based Creekside Financial Advisors, LLC is proud to announce that Nan Cohen, the firm’s founder and CEO, has been selected to receive the 2012 YWCA Greater Cleveland Women of Achievement Award.
Women of Achievement are chosen based on the long-term impact of their career achievements and their deep commitment to the community. “For 36 years, the YWCA has recognized highly successful women serving as supportive mentors and role models for women and girls. We are honored to celebrate the accomplishments of this year’s Women of Achievement, who truly embody the YWCA’s mission to empower women and eliminate racism,” explained Margaret Mitchell, President and CEO of YWCA Greater Cleveland.
Ms. Cohen was selected to receive this esteemed award because throughout her personal and professional life she has been dedicated to meeting the needs of less fortunate people in the Cleveland community.
