Meet the Houston, Texas: Memorial/spring branch Local Leaders
WCE's Houston, Texas: Memorial/Spring Branch Chapter Local Leader Keri Ann Reardon of Makeup by Keri Ann
A little about Keri Ann:
Hi there! My name is Keri Ann and I am the owner and artist at Makeup by Keri Ann. I have been serving the greater Houston area for 10+ years as an on-location free-lance makeup artist. I have had the honor of being named one of Houston's Top MUAs from 2017-2022.**
I provide makeup services "for all of life's special events!" - from weddings, photography sessions, milestone celebrations and personalized makeup lessons. I love passing on tips and techniques I have learned in my many years of working in the cosmetic industry. How can I help you makeup?
I believe networking with fellow biz owners is the key to any successful business. I love building relationships with business owners and learning about their passions. Connecting people together is also a gift of mine. All of the networking groups I have attended required a significant commute from home and I am so excited to meet women here in Houston's Energy Corridor and watch their businesses grow and thrive.
Personally, I am a skin care and cosmetic junkie - attempting to age gracefully without needles and surgeons. I love all things creative - from painting to knitting to sewing. Working on creative photo shoots is one of my favorite things as a freelance makeup artist. Traveling is also a hobby - from visiting small town USA to ancient places abroad. I am as happy exploring back roads as looking down at the scenery at 30K feet! As much as I love people, the introvert in me, loves nothing more than curling up with a good book - solving the mystery of "who did it" is my fave. I have been married for over 25 years. My greatest accomplishment is being a mom and growing into my new title as "Glammy".
WCE's Houston, Texas: Memorial/Spring Branch Chapter Local Leader Sarah Conn-Gassman
A little a bout Sarah:
Hi, everyone! I am the owner of Sarah Gassman Photography, LLC. I am also a wife and a mom to two awesome kids. Spending time with my family brings me joy and is my top priority. After recovering from a rough first few months as a mother, it became my mission is to support women, especially mothers, in a way that helps create meaningful, lasting memories and reduce stress when possible. As an award-winning, full-service portrait photographer, I help women look and feel their best in front of the camera without worrying about all the details of preparing for a photo session. My niches include maternity, newborn, family, and headshot/branding photo sessions. My goal for each session is to bring a clients’ personality into the photos to help them share their story.
Fun Facts about me: I am a former high school and college math teacher. I like to spend “me time” practicing yoga and also enjoy bird watching (really photographing birds and other wildlife) with my extended family.
WCE's Houston, Texas: Memorial/Spring Branch Chapter Local Leader Sarah McDonner of ECHO Orchestra:
A little about Sarah:
Sarah McDonner is the founder and Executive Director of ECHO Orchestra. ECHO is a 501(c)(3) non-profit arts organization housed in the Energy Corridor District in West Houston. Sarah's family moved to West Houston/ Energy Corridor area in 1992. She attended Barbara Bush Elementary, Paul Revere MS, and Westside HS. So, West Houston is truly Sarah's home. She also holds a B.A. in Music Performance from Denison University, Granville, OH and in 2010 she graduated with her M.M. in Flute Performance from Ithaca College in Ithaca, NY. She moved back to Houston in 2011 where she started her own flute studio. Then in 2013 Sarah and her husband (who was just her boyfriend at the time) started a product business called Yutumi where they manufactured, produced, and sold an all-natural bug repellent skin care line that was sold to HEB, Central Market, and on Amazon. This business was closed in 2020, but so much was learned from this startup. Now Sarah focuses her entrepreneurial energy on ECHO Orchestra, which is now in it's 10th Anniversary Season. Sarah and her husband, Ryan, live in the Energy Corridor area with their two kids and two cats.
