Jolie Gotique Owner & Founder Fashion Greenwich, CT
About Penny
Born in Montreal, Canada I was raised by parents who owned a fashion line and I was exposed to some of the worlds fastest fashion trends at an early age. My childhood truly influenced my attention to detail and eye for esthetic/ style and hard working attitude. Today, I live in Greenwich, CT with my husband and 2 beautiful children. I have formed deep roots in the Westchester & Fairfield County areas. Plus I love the quick commute to NYC. Besides owning my own business (which I speak of below), I am a fitness addict, dancer & multi-tasker!

Words you live by/quotes you love

"veni, vidi, vici" by Julius Caesar, translated to "I came, I saw, I conquered"

Best advice you've ever been given

This is going to sound lame...but the honest truth..."Be Kind" and I don't think those were 2 words explicitly uttered by my parents or teachers. It's my husband who has really engraved that in my head. He always says it to our children and I truly believe those are the 2 most important words one can live by. Be Kind and everything else will follow.

Personal Passions, Charities, Hobbies:

I am a fitness addict and can be found in the gym 4 mornings/week and I'd go more often if it weren't for all my other mompreneur responsibilities! I love to dance, both in and out of the gym. I love a good book and highly recommend "Little Fires Everywhere" by Celeste Ng, which I just finished. My family is my #1 passion for certain! I collaborate with many charities and organizations. There is truly a long list. One of the most rewarding parts of owning Jolie Gotique is that we regularly part with non-profits and donate a % of sales from our events. Some of these include; Kids in Crisis, Breast Cancer Alliance, Memorial Sloan Kettering, JCC Greenwich, Boys & Girls Club, and more...

Name one thing that scares the shit out of you:

I don't have majorly big fears...as I get older I brace myself when there is turbulence on an airplane and I never used to care. I think my current fears are all wrapped up in motherhood and wanting to keep my family safe and secure - so nowadays, anything that can put that in jeopardy does scare me.

What is one thing that would be game-changing for your business right now?

Growing my online presence and e-commerce site nationally is a major goal of 2018...some ground breaking media/press or major blogger shout out could be groundbreaking! I'm working on it!

If you could tell your 20 year old self one thing, what would it be?

Be true to yourself always... after "Be Kind" those would be the next words I'd tell my 20 year old self, my children, my friends and anyone else who would listen!

Why do you want to be a part of heymama?

I'm a mom who owns a business and sometimes that can be isolating. I'd love to learn about and be part of a community of modern day mamas who work, enjoy hobbies, stay active and do it all with fun, laughs and sometimes tears! I'd also love to collaborate and partner with some of these wonderful mompreneurs.
