One of the best ways to relieve oneself after a long day of “conferencing,” is to get out on the dance floor. I had the opportunity to DJ the closing party at RISE, A Women’s Event, which took place at Eastlake Church.

It was a short session, but filled with non-stop dance hits. Here’s a look at the setlist.

I was reunited with an intern of mine. We had not seen each other in more than 10 years!
