It is Milwaukee Magazine's pleasure to introduce this special section featuring female business owners, financial and spiritual leaders, health care professionals, entrepreneurs, philanthropists and all-around glass-ceiling breakers!

By “being the best version” of herself as a mother, wife and business woman, Amanda Baltz – the mother of five kids and 2019 Woman of the Year for raising the most funds for Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Wisconsin chapter – has been able to give back to her church, friends and family “in a balanced and healthy way.”

In 2018, Spaulding Medical (a med-tech company) spun off from Spaulding Clinical, a company she joined while pregnant with her second child. “Through that process, I had an epiphany that I truly love starting and growing businesses,” she says. “I see all of that job growth as having a major impact in the community.”

“Charity begins at home, by getting my family inspired and involved. And then we inspire others to join us.” – Amanda Baltz, CEO, Spaulding Medical
