PLANTING SEEDS • SHE'S INSPIRED
She Rocks We Rock began as a small studio meet up in Mission Hills in the winter of 2016 in San Diego, CA. Three lady-founders [ Jessica Jalowiec + Laurie Nicoud + Amanda Thorne ] were on a mission: to connect and celebrate like minded lady-preneurs. Seeing the benefit of rich personal business connections first hand, they really wanted to create an uplifting atmosphere for other like-minded female creatives to mix, mingle, and move mountains.
They invited 25 creatives, and called on the female business owner community for party resources. In just 1 month, with the help of several other creative women in business, they pulled together a signature cocktail bar with local spirits, a spread of catered bites + beautiful decor in our intimate studio space. The small studio doors opened up on a rainy evening late November, and the candlelit room was packed with eager and interested creative women looking to connect. Shortly after, the She Rocks We Rock vision began to gain momentum, and before long it was a bit too grand to squeeze into a 50ft by 50ft studio space.
TAKING A LEAP OF FAITH • SHE'S SUPPORTED
In June of 2017, She Rocks We Rock launched ticket sales for its first large-scale networking party. And within 2 weeks, the event was a complete sell out. On event day, You and Yours Distilling Co in east village San Diego was bustling with 100 creative women celebrating each other over light bites, beauty bars, and shopping. Countless creative projects were born and new business relationships were built. The little community that started in a small studio space had expanded, and the city of San Diego was beginning to take notice. In August of 2017, San Diego Magazine deemed She Rocks We Rock one of the “best female networking events” in all of San Diego County.
