Are you involved in a business venture, a local organization, a creative endeavor, or in the corporate world? Please share!
I have a women’s clothing brand, Lauren Gabrielson. From bombers to blouses I create everyday essentials all made in Brooklyn.
How has the community of female entrepreneurs been instrumental in getting you to where you are now?
I truly believe community is essential for growth and being able to have like minded women in my network has been essential. Balancing between motherhood and a career it’s nice to know that my mama tribe has my back.
