The YWCA’s Tribute to Women of Influence (TWIN) event honors women who have made significant contributions to their fields, and recognizes those organizations that support such achievements. 2011 marks the 20th anniversary of TWIN. Leading up to this year’s September 15th event, we will highlight each of our 25 incredible TWIN Honorees.

Kelley Webb, City of Asheville Fire Department

In Kelley’s role as the City of Asheville Fire Department’s Public Information Officer, she is the face of the department. Kelley exemplifies the empowerment of women to a large audience every time she gives an interview to the media. Kelley is a capable and confident woman providing information about emergency response activities during disasters as well as guiding the public as to what to do during emergencies. As the Asheville Fire Department strives to diversify its workforce, seeking ways to cultivate interest in women and minorities to a career in the fire service, Kelley spent countless hours putting together Asheville Fire Department’s first annual Fire Camp. This camp for middle school students serves as a critical launching pad for other programs for middle and high school students.
