Wainwright, whose reach now includes more than 174,000 followers on Instagram, will be the featured speaker and Venture Connectors’ June luncheon. Venture Connectors’ monthly luncheons are held on the first Wednesday of the month at the Muhammad Ali Center, 144 N. Sixth Street. Doors open at 11:30 a.m., and the meeting is scheduled from noon until 1:15 p.m.

Registration is required at www.ventureconnectors.org. Members attend free, and associate members pay $30. Guests who register online by noon the day before the lunch pay $40.

Wainwright started her blog — www.asoutherndrawl.com — in 2011 when she was a student at the University of Louisville, eventually graduating with a master’s degree in bioengineering. The blog served as a much-needed outlet for her creativity and she quickly built a following.

She decided to become a full-time blogger in 2015. She also launched a new Instagram fitness account (@FitWithASD) in January, where she shares her current workout routines and fitness trends. The new page already has more than 22,000 followers.
