Women & Wine on Wednesdays was created by Linda Brewster Meffert in early 2005 in New Orleans, Louisiana, as a way for women to improve lifestyle balance by re-connecting with friends, making new acquaintances, and being open to develop new ideas and relationships.

Christy Hackenberg and Gaby Tillero created the branding for the concept, after mutual friend, Sandra Lombana introduced them to Linda Meffert. The four women founded the New Orleans location in 2005.

Over the years, many women in many cities have come to enjoy this same opportunity made available by the expansion of Women & Wine on Wednesdays into cities around the country.

About The Woodlands' Women & Wine on Wednesdays

The Coordinators of  The Woodlands' Women & Wine on Wednesdays would like to personally introduce ourselves and warmly welcome you to join the next event.


Anna Ryan, originally from Tulsa, OK, is very happy to be living, playing, and developing her Keller Williams Real Estate business in the Conroe/Woodlands area.  When she's not busy pursuing her passion for real estate and technology, you can find her reading, watching movies in her media room, hanging on the lake, rocking at a concert or dining at one of her favorite Woodlands spots, where she can check out a new wine or meal!   If you need input on the latest app or social media outlet, Anna is the person to ask!  Her love of technology is only surpassed by her love of teaching and mentoring others, and her warm and outgoing personality makes her easy to approach!

Donna Rodriguez grew up in Odessa, TX, but she's been living and working in The Woodlands now for over 12 years, and she loves the opportunities that are available here for entrepreneurs like herself.  As a successful CPA and Attorney, she is passionate about helping others by lending an ear or a much-needed hug.  Her big heart has made her an absolute animal lover.  When she's not working, she may be found watching Nascar or football, cheering on her longhorns or enjoying pizza and Pinot Noir at Grimaldi's with friends.  Since she's traveled so extensively over the years, her dream vacation is a year-long cruise around the world!  Donna is inspired by her father, who grew up very poor but thanks to his intelligence and work ethic, he retired very successful.  When asked what she would teach her 16-year old self, she reflects, "Never judge people by appearances and treat everyone with respect."

Beatrice Stair grew up in Ventura and Santa Barbara, California.  She lived in Las Vegas, Nevada for 19 years before leaving the bright lights for Texas.  She considers herself a southern girl at heart!  When asked about leaving Las Vegas, she said, “Moving to The Woodlands area was the best move for our family!”  She has a love of teaching and did so for 11 years. She is a CAbi fashion consultant and continues to teach…only now about fashion!  She is very involved with marketing and helps to support many community organizations. She enjoys going to the beach, concerts, movies and spending time with her family. She’s always willing to lead a hand or ear to help others.
