“Building meaningful relationships keeps you grounded and moving forward.”

The Coral Gables Chamber of Commerce was founded in 1925 by George E. Merrick. The Chamber is comprised of businesses and professionals whose goal is to expand the local economy.

With 1,600+ members and ranked #2 in South Florida (2019) has a full calendar of events around the year, creating an opportunity for business leaders to network, connect and strengthen their relationships.

I have been a member since 2014, and it has been amazing! It is a great way to build meaningful relationships and to get involved with your community in many different ways.  Here, I have found clients, strategic partnerships and friends, where else can you get all of that?


Ladies' Ledger started in 2018 as a mastermind group of professional women. We believe in women's empowerment, in helping each other to be successful and in giving back to the community through philanthropy. It is a small group based on trust and confidentiality; that is why there is only one member per industry.

It is not a typical networking group, and we value family and friendship overall.  I have found priceless friendships and a fantastic support system within this group of amazing women.

At this moment, this first chapter is not admitting new members; however, soon, I am sure there will be an opportunity to join a new chapter.

"Family First. Business Second. Honor Above Profit. Be your Sisters Keeper" 


Lauren Marsicano is a litigation business attorney and a powerhouse when it comes to networking and empowering women. She founded The Networking Maverick to help entrepreneurs build connections and make their ideas a reality.

Being a part of the committee that supports and helps her to put together different networking events is a fantastic experience. These events are for networking and also for learning about various topics related to business, life, women empowerment, and health.

The main goal is to empower and inspire women entrepreneurs to get out of their comfort zone and go after their dreams with all the support, motivation, and knowledge they need to be successful.
