Meet Our Founder
Hi there! My name is Gabe, and I am the owner and founder of Ivy & Ash. I was born to be an entrepreneur, and my first love was... trombone. I know, probably not what you were expecting!
I grew up surrounded by music and turned trombone playing and teaching into my career. I have celebrated many successes in this career, but having the entrepreneurial spirit, I wanted to try something new. When the pandemic hit, and I found myself with a lot more time on my hands, I took it as the perfect sign to start a new venture. After a lot of research in both nail wraps and how to start and run a product-based business, Ivy & Ash was born!
A major underlying current throughout my life and in all of my business ventures has been "girls can do this, too." That has always been my huge why. As a female trombonist in a male dominated field, I wanted to inspire girls and show them that they can play this instrument and this kind of music - it's not just for boys.
This same energy followed me when I launched Ivy & Ash. I want to be a successful entrepreneur and business owner to show others, particularly other women, that yes, girls/women can do this, too.
Thank you for supporting my small business. Shopping small, specifically from women-owned businesses, means a lot - not just to me, but to women and girls all over the world.
Are you a female entrepreneur, too?
