Though many women are notinvolved in politics, they still need those such as Weirich to represent them in government and to take a stand on issues that are important to them. We also need professional women to run for office and be politically active so they can influence positive change for businesswomen. Weirich was appointed district attorney by Gov. Bill Haslam in 2011, then won her first political campaign when she was elected to the position the following year. The veteran prosecutor has worked in the DA’s office since 1991, serving as a deputy district attorney and chief prosecutor of gang and drug-related crimes. Her community involvement includes serving on the boards of the Memphis-Shelby Crime Commission, the Western District of Tennessee Multi-Agency Gang Unit, the Family Safety Center, Memphis Child Advocacy Center and YMCA. A graduate of Germantown High School, Weirich earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of Tennessee at Martin and a law degree from the University of Memphis’ Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law. She and her husband, Chuck, have four children.

One of 80 U.S. chapters, NAWBO Memphis mission is to propel women entrepreneurs into economic, social and political spheres of power worldwide.
