Celebrating Our #SheOwned Queens: A Tribute to Women’s Entrepreneurial Excellence

Welcome, December! Woot Woot! It’s that magical time of the year again when the Women’s Chamber of Commerce rolls out the red carpet for our fabulous #SheOwned queens! 

At the Women’s Chamber of Commerce, it marks a special time to honor and celebrate the extraordinary women who have been the backbone of our Chamber. You ladies have not only supported us but have also impressed us with your commitment, passion, and outstanding achievements throughout the year. 

This month we’re thrilled to close out 2023 highlighting and paying homage to the #SheOwned business owners and corporate queens who have not only supported the Chamber but have shown exceptional dedication and resilience throughout the year.

Let’s start with our first #SheOwned business…

Meet Lilly Paez, the passionate force behind Wander with Lilly. Lilly’s love for travel transcends the ordinary – it’s about immersing in new cultures, exploring historical wonders, and creating unforgettable experiences. As a certified advisor with Modern FORA Travel Agency, Lilly doesn’t just plan trips; she curates personalized, luxury vacations that promise not just travel, but an adventure of a lifetime. Her expertise in securing perks at 4 and 5-star hotels ensures that every getaway is as indulgent as it is enriching.

Her specialty, affectionately named cheesecake poppers, are not only a delight for the taste buds but also a tool for change. A significant portion of her profits supports Down syndrome advocacy groups, a cause dear to her as a mother of a child with Down syndrome.
