Ladies who Lead: Jennifer Gilbert {Style Spotlight}

 

While we have spotlighted many #GirlBosses over the past year, we are kicking off a new series of Style Spotlights, once a week, featuring Ladies who Lead in Business. To kick off the first “Ladies who Lead”, we were thrilled to interview the stylish & savvy CEO of Doodle Home and mother of 5, Jennifer Gilbert.  

 

{SS} What is your profession?

{SS} What inspired you to start your company?

{JG} As an interior designer, I was looking for a better way to do the business side of interior design and find more time to do what I do best, design.

{SS} In regards to your personal style, do you have a signature look or accessory?

{JG} It depends on the day and which “hat” I am wearing; business woman, interior designer or mom of 5. Regardless, my style tends to be understated classic with an edge.

{JG} My D-Squared Jeans, Guidi Boots, The Row t-shirts, Rick Owens leather jacket and Alaia dresses.
