Ginger is a former financial sales executive of 15 years who left the bustle of Wall Street in 2014 to join her husband in Las Vegas. After relocating to Nevada and having her daughter, Ginger found her finely tuned skill set didn’t apply in the world of Gaming & Hospitality; the roles available were inflexible for new mothers and uninviting even for a trading floor veteran. She credits the tenacity and work ethic she learned from her days in banking with giving her the courage to become an entrepreneur. She hopes to inspire other like-minded women in the Vegas community to do the same at Bloom.
Chelli spent most of her professional life surrounded by men – brilliant men with big personalities. She attended the United States Naval Academy for college, worked in the wireless industry for over a decade (the youngest and only female channel manager) and most recently spent the last 7 years being the business strategist for international superstar, Pitbull. While she learned valuable lessons from these men, after a while it felt as though she was hiding behind their greatness and keeping herself small – she was the woman behind the curtain. When she moved to Las Vegas in 2014 she could no longer deny her lifelong desire to support women, to create a safe space for them to step into their greatness – and for her to finally step into her own. The idea of Bloom, the first co-working space for women in Las Vegas, was born.
