    Barbara Meltzer is Honoree in Adam Schiff’s 2023 Women of the Year

    Congressman Adam Schiff has named Barbara Melzer, the owner of Barbara Meltzer & Associates Public Relations and Marketing, as Woman of the Year for the City of West Hollywood. Congressman Schiff announced the names of sixteen remarkable women from California’s 30th district who are being honored as the 2023 Woman of the Year. These women have made significant contributions to their communities through civic engagement, community service, and leadership in their respective fields.

    “The sixteen 2023 Woman of the Year honorees are an inspiration to their communities for their passion and dedication to service. As artists, engineers, entertainers, surgeons, bakers, and beyond, these women are not just leaders in their fields of work but in their communities, making our home a better place for all,” said Schiff.

    Schiff will celebrate the honorees at a private luncheon this summer. Schiff annually selects women who have made outstanding contributions to their communities to honor as Women of the Year. Any resident of the 30th Congressional District is eligible, and Schiff seeks nominations from the public.

    The 2023 honorees are Barbara Monderine-Williams (Atwater Village), Isabel Omero (Burbank), Rhonda Reynolds (Echo Park), Maria Herrera (Elysian Valley), Dr. Christina Ashjian Garabedian (Glendale), Carolyn Ramsay (Hancock Park), Dr. Joanna Chikwe (Hollywood Hills), Alexa Skarpelos (Hollywood), Delores Shine Kerr (Miracle Mile/Mid-Wilshire), Patricia Lombard (Larchmont Village), Barbara Howell (Los Feliz), Chanchanit Martorell (Park La Brea), Dr. Marie Levine (Pasadena), Barbara Kwong (Silver Lake), Evelyn Serrano (Sunland/Tujunga), and Barbara Meltzer (West Hollywood).

    Barbara Meltzer began her career in her hometown of New York City, where she worked as an assistant to the producer on NBC’s Tonight Show. Several years later, Barbara turned her attention from commercial to public broadcasting, joining LA’s then-PBS station KCET-TV as Executive-in-Charge of Talent. Barbara returned to Public Relations as an Account Executive for Boonshaft-Lewis & Savitch, a public relations and government affairs agency. After several years with the firm, she launched Barbara Meltzer & Associates Public Relations and Marketing. In 2007, Barbara’s active civic engagement led to her appointment as a Commissioner on the Los Angeles County Commission for Older Adults. Barbara’s service to West Hollywood increased in 2013 when she was appointed to the Human Services Commission. She also serves as Vice President of the Friends of the West Hollywood Library Board of Directors.
