Jennifer's Bio

Jennifer Faught, the founder of the Society, got her start in marketing for the healthcare and tech worlds, and then started her own wedding invitation design business in 2008. She kept working her day job for three years as she grew her business, and finally in 2011, her side hustle became her full-time thing. In 2012, she arrived at the Stationery Academy conference with her guard up, thinking she needed to impress her competition. Instead of competitors, she met twenty other inspiring, welcoming, incredibly smart businesswomen who answered any questions without making her feel stupid or naïve. That conference changed her entire business experience, so when she was offered the chance to purchase the business, she took the leap. she planned her first conference in 2014, and the rest is history.
