Twelve women in Connecticut were chosen and given the prestigious award at a ceremony at The Hartford Club. Also at the luncheon ceremony was Lt. Governor Nancy Wyman, who was the keynote speaker and had the honor of presenting the awards to the recipients.

Clark operates an independent real estate firm, which has offices in Somers and New London. The second-generation family firm offers commercial and residential brokerage in Connecticut, Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
Clark said that she is proud that her firm has dodged the trends of shrinking real estate brokerages and privately-owned real estate firms being absorbed by nationally-franchised companies. A degree from the University of Connecticut and a former career as a social worker help Clark provide great service.
She explains that her work is very similar to human service work and states that, “It is not so much about sales as it is about guiding people through a process.”
In addition to running her real estate business, Clark is very active in community programs including the Economic Development Commission for the town of Somers, and recently helped coordinate the Somers Great Escape Road Race by raising scholarship funds for the Somers Rotary.
Clark, the mother of two daughters, is also a member of The Breakfast Club, a networking group in South Windsor, and a member of The North Central Chamber of Commerce and Greater Hartford Association of Realtors.
Clark and her staff can be reached at the Somers office at 612 Main St. next to Rockville Bank or by calling 860-851-9644 or at their New London Office at 860-444-7704. More information about the firm, the staff, and the inventory can also be found at www.ccrsales.com.
