Lexi Severini - Digital Account Manager at Everywhere Agency
While she’s been with her agency for two years Lexi will tell you that it feels like just yesterday walking through the doors of her building on Krog Street into the Everywhere office. With a casual and comfortable aesthetic, and a staff to match, Lexi swears that you won’t find a professional yet personable atmosphere quite like it wherever you go. In her time at Everywhere, Lexi has worn many hats – from community management to influencer outreach for the company’s longtime client – Macy’s. From aiding in the development of social strategy, to campaign management and running social bootcamps, Lexi has gotten a heavy dose of what it takes to work in a small but mighty agency with both B2B and B2C clientele. When she’s not in the office, Lexi likes to spend time in the park with her pup, Naya, enjoys a day at the driving range and an evening cooking decadent meals for as many friends as she can fit in her house. Come say hello because the only thing she likes more than a friendly smile is a friendly interaction!

Bianca Rush & Dayy Jones - Founders of Ladies Who Brunch ATL - Ladies Who Brunch: Atlanta is a global women empowerment movement for current and aspiring entrepreneurial women to connect, gather and knowledge share over a brunch in a metropolitan city. Based in Atlanta, Georgia the purpose of Ladies Who Brunch: Atlanta is to provide an outlet where women can empower each other and establish relationships (and friendships) that can carry on throughout their entrepreneurial endeavors.
Having met in November 2013 at a Thanksgiving Turkey giveaway in Atlanta, Georgia, Dayira Jones and Bianca Rush spoke about the need for an avenue for women to be able to seek to gather information or advice on best practices or experiences with becoming or being an entrepreneurial woman in today’s society. Dayira Jones, being the founder of notably successful Bella Bar Tee’s, and Bianca Rush, being the founder and co-owner of global brand Sassy Mitchell Hair, wanted to provide a solution to a need that they both felt was critical for women in business. As a result of their conversation, Ladies Who Brunch: Atlanta was established and began its first women’s brunch on December 15, 2013. Since it’s birth in 2013, Ladies Who Brunch: Atlanta has vastly grown to become a recognizable brand for women empowerment and creating connections for women to be successful.
