Group fosters empowerment among women

The Ridgefield chapter of B.I.G. — Believe, Inspire, Grow, led by Wilton photographer Nina Pomeroy — will host a presentation with Deborah Shimer on Wednesday, April 6, at noon, at Gallo Ridgefield, 5 Grove Street, Ridgefield.

According to a press release, Shimer is a “vibrant living alchemist” whose company,  Desire on Fire, helps women reignite their “inner flame” that used to burn brightly but has dimmed over time due to stress brought on by work, relationships, health or other life events. To find out more, visit
