Welcome to Women’s Resource

Women’s Resource connects professionals, entrepreneurs, experts, mentors, students, start-ups and visionaries with opportunities to share, network, gain knowledge and business tips, as well as discover resources on services and product offered here locally in our own region.

Events vary providing from free to fee events, plus  member-only events. Our goal is to provide value to our members and the community by continually building rich connections and resources that benefit businesses and end users with local services and products in creative, fun and inviting settings.  See you at one of our next events.

Rachael CostnerWomen's Resource
Rachael Costner has over 25 years of experience in marketing and advertising. She earned her BA degree from San Diego State University. Washington has been her home since 1984. Rachael has worked closely with many businesses in the South Sound on branding strategy and marketing development as her role and principal of a Tacoma advertising agency. In 2011, Rachael sold her agency, Sands Costner & Associates, to her son–proving that a family succession can be successful. Her passion for connecting people and resources has been the driving force to the success Women’s Resource and the networking events that bind the members and the community.

In 2012, she was named Women of Influence by the Business Examiner and was SBA’s 2008 Women in Business Champion. It was an honor to receive The U.S. Small Business Administration’s Seattle District Office Washington State & Region 10 (WA, OR, ID, AK) Women in Business Champion award.

Today, Women’s Resource has the power of a strong and influential Advisory Board to help continue the vision and mission of Women’s Resource. With the combined efforts, women’s resource members will experience heightened energy, and new educational workshops and seminars, and of course our continued social networking events such as FEMM, Business Network Tours, JazzyJune and VIP member events.
