Woman-Owned Businesses

Jessica East founded Noir Marketing and PR as a divorced, single-mother of three in January, 2012. Starting a business is no easy feat, especially when you’re female. In addition to overcoming the same obstacles that other new businesses face, women owners often find that we have to work harder than our male counterparts to “prove” our abilities as professionals. It is in this spirit of camaraderie that we want to share other local woman-owned businesses with you. This list is comprised of clients, vendors, shops and services that we love.
