Aysia Woods is the founder and principal of Events by AW, a corporate event consultancy. She is a creator by nature, entrepreneur by heart, and anthropologist by training. People have been the common thread of her seemingly disparate passions since childhood. Fast forward through organizing business conferences for 350+ attendees, working at publications and cultural institutions, and a solid dose of international adventure, Aysia developed a niche for thoughtfully connecting people and creating moments. In 2015, she founded Events by AW.
Prior to full-time entrepreneurship, Aysia's past professional experience includes positions at The Phillips Collection, Exhibits Development Group, Washington Life Magazine, and The George Washington University.
She has a B.A. in Sociocultural Anthropology from The George Washington University in Washington, DC and is currently pursuing her M.A. from her alma mater in Entrepreneurship and Management Leadership. She currently lives in sunny Savannah, Georgia.
Aysia frequently mentors and volunteers with GW Women in Business, which is affiliated with United Women in Business, enjoys participating in speaking engagements, and is developing other entrepreneurial pursuits related to hospitality, community-building, and lifestyle.
