Chrysula Winegar

Chrysula Winegar is a wife and mother first, and a few other things second. She is committed to raising the profile of mothers around the world. She believes the voices of mothers are under-heard and under-appreciated. On her blog, When You Wake Up A Mother, she invites mothers to wake up the world. Her four young children have taught her more than her 20 years of experience in marketing communications, training and organizational change. She is currently Community Manager for the Million Moms Challenge – their voices and compassion are humbling and inspiring.
Australian by birth, Chrysula has lived all over the world. She has been in America for 12 years and is currently working on her US citizenship, happening as soon as she can recite those first 13 states of the Union! Chrysula is the only girl of her generation. She has 3 brothers and only male cousins! This would explain her childhood status as favorite child, grandchild and niece.
