Business Development Lead
When you chat with Gavin, you can’t help but notice her creativity, curiosity, and passion for helping people and companies. It’s that exact combination that fuels her work at Own The Room. For Gavin, business development is really about people development, finding new ways to help our clients transform their personal and professional lives.
Prior to joining our team, Gavin launched Waldrip, a New York-based women’s clothing line that sold in high-end retailers across the US and Canada, garnered attention from Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar, and was a favorite among celebrities like Lady Gaga and Taylor Swift. In 2015, Gavin shifted to a career in commercial real estate, helping hospitality brands expand along the East Coast. She has experience working as a chef in New York and now follows her passion for food by volunteering with Meals on Wheels.
A lifelong lover of travel and learning new things, Gavin spent six months working on a schooner, sailing from the US Virgin Islands to Venezuela and then up to Maine. While at sea, she studied marine biology, maritime history, and celestial navigation. She’s now taking her adventures skyward, traveling with her drone to capture photographs so she can see new places from above.
