Jeremie Draper of JDraper Glass, LLC will be speaking at the Morton Chamber of Commerce’s Leadership Women series on Monday, May 13 at Unum Fine Wine & Whiskey Lounge and is sponsored by Em.bel.lish Hair Design & Day Spa.

Jeremie Draper is a soft glass artist, instructor and owner of JDraper Glass LLC. A central Illinois native, Draper has shared her passion for hand-blown glass by engaging the Peoria area through classes, tours, workshops and open houses. Her personal collection can be viewed at her studio at The Studios on Sheridan by appointment, or any time at the General Wayne A. Downing Peoria International Airport, Exhibit A Gallery, and the Peoria Riverfront Museum.

Leadership Women offers an opportunity for inspiration from a woman-owned business as their leaders share their business and life journey, and to discuss the unique challenges of being a woman in the workplace with successful women in leadership. The intimate lunch setting is ideal for in-depth discussions on balancing work and family, maximizing strengths, and working in environments and situations that still may cater to men.

The event is open for all to attend. Online registration is available at or by phone at (309) 263-2491. Registration is $30 for Chamber members and $40 for non-Chamber members and includes lunch.
