GALVESTON, TX  – February 11, 2019 – The Galveston Regional Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce Jessica Herrin, Author, CEO and Founder of Stella & Dot, as an additional speaker at the 12th Annual Galveston Women’s Conference to be held on Thursday, May 9, 2019, at Moody Gardens Convention Center in Galveston.

Jessica Herrin is a serial entrepreneur who previously co-founded, the world’s leading wedding site. With a vision to create a new kind of company that would offer today’s busy woman a career alternative, Jessica wanted to use her savvy to help solve the modern woman’s dilemma: achieving success and balance through a career you love. Never one to go with the status quo, Jessica felt that the typical home-based business just didn’t deliver. With a lackluster product, high-pressure sales tactics, and old school marketing methods, inventory was ending up in people’s closets with little profit in their pockets.

Jessica’s vision called for an entirely new concept that could guarantee women flexibility, reward, style, profit and fun. With an irresistible product and exceedingly personal service, a proven formula for passionate earning and personal success was born. In 2007, Jessica built a world-class team including esteemed advisor Mike Lohner, sales guru Danielle Redner and Blythe Harris as partner and Chief Creative Officer. Jessica and Blythe named Stella & Dot after their beloved grandmothers.

Jessica’s vision called for an entriely new concept that could gurantee women flexibility, reward, style, profit, and fun.

The Galveston Women’s Conference will also feature its keynote speaker, former First Lady Laura Bush. The event brings in more than 1,000 participants from across the region and features dynamic speakers, an incredible vendor market, fitness breaks and more. The event aims to educate women about health and women’s issues, equip them with skills to be successful in life and business, inspire them to be their best, and renew their spirit.

“Over the past 11 years, the Galveston Women’s Conference has brought some amazing voices to the conference, said Gina M. Spagnola, President and CEO of the Galveston Regional Chamber of Commerce. “This year, we are honored to have Mrs. Bush and Jessica Herrin as well as leading experts on women’s health and wellness from physicians’ at UTMB Health.
