Meet Our Speakers
Called “innovative and inspiring” by the American Counseling Association, licensed therapist and entrepreneur Bea Arthur has become a leader in the field of mental health care and telemedicine. With the goal of bringing peace and power to women everywhere, she founded Pretty Padded Room, a platform that is devoted to transforming traditional therapy into a more affordable and approachable experience. The Columbia University alum has worked with a variety of demographics including addicts in recovery, couples in crisis, and survivors of domestic violence. Her passion for self-care led her to start two wellness-based businesses and a thriving private practice all before the age of 30. She has been featured in MTV, Fast Company, Entrepreneur Magazine, Huffington Post, and CNN; and was also named part of the New Guard of women in tech by Marie Claire magazine as well as an entrepreneur to bet on by Newsweek. Arthur is also the first black female CEO to be accepted into the prestigious Y Combinator accelerator program.
