Women Inspiring, Supporting, & Helping

About W.I.S.H.

We believe that when women support each other, there is no limit to what we can accomplish.  W.I.S.H. is a women’s networking group that focuses on building each other up both personally and in business while also supporting our community.


The Women of W.I.S.H.

WISH was founded in early 2010 by Kathy Schultze of State Farm Insurance and Meghan Butler of Ceresville Mansion. After discussing networking opportunities within the community the two felt that women should be able to come together to help one another expand their business without the bylaws, and weekly commitments. In such, they formed what has become WISH.
In 2015, member Melissa Lentz was given the leadership to manage WISH. The main focus changed to be community driven, to support each other along with other organizations and non-profits. Networking is still a priority, while giving back to our community.
WISH meets The first Thursday morning of every month at the Canapés Catering in Frederick. In addition, we have a monthly evening outing.
We welcome anyone who would like to join. There are no requirements, other than buying your breakfast and bringing various needed items for the evening events.

What a great group of positive and energetic women!

I have never met a more welcoming and supportive group of women in my life! So lucky to have found the women of WISH!!!!

Monica Wack, Innov8tive Brand Management

At my first WISH meeting, I felt an immediate kinship with the ladies gathered around at Canapes Catering. The group been a great source of inspiration through the speakers and activities but mostly because of the diverse backgrounds of the women. We have also learned about and been able to support various nonprofits in the Frederick area through the speakers each month.
