Now, Chelsey also has her own print business […]


Empowering Women: Lydia Smith Schrader

When I first met Lydia, she had just moved to CT for her job at an interior design firm in Greenwich and was also volunteering for FOCUS (the non-profit I now work for). I immediately wanted to be friends with her! She has that kind of warm and genuine sense about her that you just […]
