Welcome! My name is Sharen Sleater. I am a WomenHeart Champion and the Western District Support Leader for WomenHeart Support Networks in Alaska, California, Nevada, Utah, and Hawaii. Being a WomenHeart Champion, Support Network Coordinator, Advocacy Participant and District Support Leader means the world to me! The association with WomenHeart has given me a purpose and drive in my later years that I treasure. To be able to make a difference in the lives of women living with or at risk of heart disease is precious to me and I strive to improve on my messages and the presentations I deliver. I look forward to a long association with WomenHeart and all the women who also serve.
