 ENGLEWOOD, OH -- Sponsored by the National Associate of Professional Women (NAPW), the annual "VIP Woman of the Year" Award Program recognizes outstanding professional woman throughout the country. The National Association of Professional Women is an exclusive network for professional women to interact, exchange ideas, educate, network, and empower. Every year, NAPW identifies women that who have achieved exceptional success in business. Winners are determined based on the information gathered both internally by the NAPW and data provided by third parties.

Kinney was selected by the NAPW Board of Directors for her outstanding leadership and commitment within her profession, through their annual selection process to honor professional women within NAPW that meet their award criteria. To help put that into perspective they have a member base of over 150,000 and less than .001% are considered VIP in her respective industry, so it is certainly an honor. Kinney says "I'm so honored to receive this award and to be distinguished within the organization."

Kinney is woman of many talents. Both a published author and motivational speaker, Marita has inspired hundreds of people to overcome adversity with triumph through faith and perseverance. In March of 2009 Marita published her very first book entitled The Unspoken Walk. Capturing the true essence of what it means to turn "lemons into lemonade", she has taken the harsh lessons of life and developed a plan for successfully living. The Unspoken Walk has afforded Marita the opportunity to travel all over the country spreading the wonderful joys of her faith with anyone willing to hear it. She is a successful business woman and has established herself as a source of inspiration, influence, and encouragement to many of the women (young and old) in her community through an organization called Joy Falls Ministries. She is also an advocate for The National Bone Marrow Donor Program, helping to educate minorities on the lack of minority donors and how it affects the comm unity.

In December 2009, Kinney launched the first of many Unspoken Walk retreats. There young women were able to connect, form strong relational bonds, and develop a support system helping them reach their full potentials. Marita says "With a heart to serve, I humbly allow God to direct my ministry and go wherever the spirit of God leads me.

Kinney is a member of BlackExperts.com, Wise Women Speakers Association, BlackSpeakers.com, Anointed Authors Network, National Association of Professional Women, and Brave Heart Women.
