The Boardwalk Shop is a group of loud-laughing, big-dreaming, faith-driven and true-hearted gals.

We are mothers, entrepreneurs, daughters, dreamers, sisters, doers, friends, bosses, adventurers, and colleagues. You can find us drinking coffee in the mornings, chatting through the day, dreaming and brainstorming together, rocking out late into the night for those after-hour projects, sipping wine during our meetings and laughing until it hurts together!

We are The Boardwalk Gals!
