In May of 2015, The Metamorphosis Experience officially launched with a Meet and Greet. The event was held at the Altadena Country Club. Over 40 women attended in celebration and support of Alicia Cass, ME’s founder and CEO. During the event women of all professions and ages connected behind a common theme, love for women. The women shared stories of overcoming obstacles and transitioning into their own butterfly experience. The women enjoyed a wonderful meal as they listened to Alicia’s story and vision for the organization.

Mrs. Lonnie Howard was honored at the ME Meet and Greet. Mrs. Howard gave Alicia an encouraging letter more that 16 years ago.
