It’s around 5:00 PM on an extremely COLD, Chicago, Wednesday night when I meet up with Brittani Ward, a casting director who spent the last 7 years crushing it in LA, and has recently moved home to Chicago. The first thing you notice (besides the fact that she is stunning and basically Blake Lively’s brunette doppelgänger) is that she exudes a passion and a confidence that’s unparalleled and extremely encouraging. From just a quick IMDB check - her skill level, her talent
We’re back for round four of LAdyboss interviews. This week I sat down with Kat Hazelton… after I accidentally introduced myself to someone else thinking she was Kat but she wasn’t. Life, am I right?

Kat has loved film, theatre, and the entertainment industry since she was cast as SIMBA in her kindergarten play. She is currently a many-hat-wearing professional: writ

Within just a few minutes of talking, it’s clear… Alexis knows casting in a way that’s completely comprehensive but never pandering. She’s passionate about her work, the futu
I sat down at a low-key coffee shop in Venice to meet with Jen Sall. Who is Jen Sall? Jen Sall is a producer who is SKILLED at developing & producing for web and film. Her narrative projects have been screened theatrically and can be seen on Amazon, Netflix and Hulu. She’s also made her way onto the festival circuits. One of her recently released project? Calvin Klein - Raf Simmons starring The xx - I Dare You short film starring Stranger Things’ Millie Bobbie Brown, Moonlig
Happy #FeatureFriday #ladybosses! Emily is the creative genius behind Bon Vivant Cakes, a Chicago bakery (that will be expanding to LA soon!) that specializes in out-of-the-box, never-before-seen, lavish, artistic cakes that also taste AMAZING! Honestly, the taste is as insanely good as the design. Bon Vivant Cakes was born only about a year ago after Emily decided to make a cake for her friend's birthday (I think we all need more friends like Emily!). The cake was giant: fiv
