And make the next chapter of your life the best!

You Matter!

We founded Lotus Network based on this belief: It’s never too late to rediscover your potential and make the next chapter of your life the very best. 

Our goals are to encourage emotional wellness, promote mental health awareness, and create a safe place for women of all ages to learn, connect, grow and share.

Who we Are

Welcome to the organization that believes it’s never too late to rediscover your potential and make the next chapter of your life the very best.

What We're Here to Do

Lotus Network believes in the power of connections. We raise awareness of purposeful living by inspiring women of all ages to fill their days in authentic and gratifying ways, encouraging women to take on new challenges physically, mentally, and spiritually, and spreading the message that age is no longer a limitation. Last but certainly not least, Lotus Network works to reduce isolation and loneliness by nurturing old friendships, encouraging new relationships, and cultivating a desire for personal growth.

Our Leaders

Co-Founders Lisa and Leslie have partnered in the event planning industry for the past 36 years, creating memorable events. These co-directors are using their skills to make memories of an entirely different sort with their non-profit, Lotus Network. They have tapped into the positive aging- and women’s movements embraced worldwide. This passionate, enthusiastic, and dynamic duo “L and L” is focusing on empowering women to embrace purposeful living and prioritize one’s self. They understand the power of building strong and meaningful connections and want to encourage all women to rise to their full potential.

Why We Do What We Do


Lotus Network provides opportunities for women to create meaningful connections, personal growth and purposeful living through social and educational resources.


We envision a world where all women, regardless of age, stage of life, geography or identity, feel meaningfully connected to a community and are empowered to find their unique purpose.

Timely Topics: Recurring and Relevant Themes for Discussion

Each month, Lotus Network provides a unique opportunity to explore “It’s Never too Late…” topics. Our live virtual guest speakers share personal experiences, expert advice, wisdom, tools, and resources. These short one-hour segments are current, thought provoking, and sometimes life changing. It is a safe place for women to learn, grow, share and connect.

Each speaker’s page features articles, videos, and various gems of information to further explore each topic.

Current Timely Topic

It’s Never Too Late To Be Your Own Advocate

9News anchor and accomplished journalist Alexandra Lewis teaches us how to elevate ourselves and push for opportunities in this enlightening talk.

Before coming to KUSA, Alexandra anchored 10 hours of news in Seattle, WA at KCPQ. During her time in Seattle, Alex covered historic wildfires, police reform, homelessness, the opioid crisis, and groundbreaking elections. The Texas native has also worked in newsrooms in her hometown of Houston, TX, Dayton, OH, and Lafayette, LA.

Upcoming Timely Topic

It's Never Too Late to Start Dismantling Your Own White Supremacy

On Tuesday, September 13th, at 12 PM MT,  Regina Jackson and Saira Rao, co-founders of Race2Dinner, teach us how to identify, confront, and dismantle the white supremacy persisting in our minds.

Regina Jackson and Saira Rao started R2D after Saira’s unsuccessful run for congress in 2018 against longtime incumbent Diana DeGette. Saira’s entire campaign platform was antiracism. Every appearances created lines of white women who wanted to talk to Saira, as she was courting votes, she would entertain these women for breakfast, lunch, dinner and cocktails, always picking up the tab. What they wanted to say without exception is, “Not me, I am not racist.”

What you think matters!

Let’s Talk About It is your opportunity to connect virtually with other women in a small discussion group setting. Women from across the country can gather together twice a month and discuss topics that build a bridge of inspiration, personal insight, and meaningful connection. 

So join in on the fun, meet new friends, and find your voice. It’s your time to actively engage!

It's time to blossom

Behold the flourishing Lotus. It takes root in the thickest mud and emerges as a beautiful flower, representing purity of body, speech, and mind. Likewise, in our lives, we sometimes become mired—stuck in the mud, so to speak. With focus, effort, and nurturing from people around us, we arise, blossom, and show the world our beauty.
