MEET OUR TEAM
There are many people on our team that help make Wrapunzel what it is today – a incredible hub that strives to inspire happiness through the art of hair wrapping. We can’t even begin to mention all our contributors here! Our designers and seamstresses, our models, the moderators on the fangroup, our photographers, graphic designers, shleppers, our helpful, supportive husbands that put up with all the insanity… we are so grateful! One day we hope to have a page that properly gives thanks to everyone, but for now here are the ladies that work as a part of the Wrapunzel Team daily!
Andrea – Owner & Founder
Andrea is an intuitive spiritual seeker with an easy laugh. You will even be comfortable answering her trademark question, “What do you live for?” She is a passionate, professional cellist, and loves teaching and performing. She is a Co-Founder/Assistant Director of both The Baltimore Bows and Chamber Encounters. From day one of covering her hair, she’s been a pioneer for creative women around the world, unwrapping the mystery of beautiful scarf tying. When not hanging out at Wrapunzel HQ or playing music, you may find her behind the pages of a good fantasy novel, cooking and hosting epic Shabbat dinners, dancing to trance music, or most likely cuddling with her adorable husband and sons.
Laila – Director of Business Management and Marketing
Laila handles all things business in the Wrapunzel world, and works hard to spread the word about Wrapunzel to all the places it’s needed! She manages to keep everything extremely organized and professional, while also raising our spirits with her contagious laugh and crazy stories. She’s a devoted wife and mother of twins! When not immersed in the Wrapunzel universe, she enjoys spending her time with them, and occasionally hiding under the covers with a good book. One day, she hopes to have time to sit down and write a bucket list.
Naomi Rose – Creative Director
Naomi Rose is the creative whiz behind Wrapunzel, specializing in writing, design and online content. Apart from inventing creative names and descriptions for Wrapunzel’s kits and tichels, Naomi’s touch can be seen in the aesthetics of Wrapunzel’s logo, website and materials. You’ll also recognize her in tutorials and model shots, and you may hear from her if you email the store – she loves to help troubleshoot! She is a conservatory-trained classical clarinetist married to a doctoral violin student, and spends time freelancing as a musician whenever possible. Between all the practicing and her baby son (who already has his own toy piano), she is grateful to have understanding neighbors. She loves sound, color, and words, in any combination.
Yedida – On-Site Coordinator
Yedida, aka Queen of the Tichel Room, is the woman who magically manages to keep Wrapunzel HQ beautifully organized and ensures all our sales, order processing, and restocking go smoothly! As part of our creative team, she also helps select amazing new things for each Wrapunzel season, and ensures that Andrea doesn’t choose only scarves which are teal. She has an all-girl family (excepting, of course, her husband) and loves cooking and baking. Her creativity leads her to lots of exciting places – you might find her with her kids at the zoo, fruit picking, or painting ceramics. One day she wants to open her own flower shop.
Yehudis – Photography and Communications
Yehudis is the talent behind the camera that captures Wrapunzel’s gorgeous model and product shots! She is also our fabric genius, working with our seamstresses and suppliers to make sure everything is perfectly suited for headwrapping. Beyond that, she answers customer comments and requests, and works on digital content and optimization for our website and YouTube channel. Yehudis loves to travel and has visited 33 US states – she’s hoping to make it to all 50, so be sure to invite her over! In addition to her fabulous sewing and textile design skills, she loves learning new things. You might find her teaching herself programming, graphic design, painting, or even carpentry. She also makes a killer dairy-free ice cream.
Miryam – Tech Support
Miryam is the hidden face behind Wrapunzel’s online presence. When she’s not knee deep in computer code you can find her caring for her menagerie of exotic pets and darling children — although truth be told she’d prefer that you find her at Walt Disney World. Her original calling was in education and she has remained on that path educating students young and old in topics of Judaism the world round from China to Russia to right next door. You’ll usually find her wearing purple.
Rivka – Packing Team
Rivka keeps our stockroom and products in tip-top shape, and packs and ships orders with utmost precision! She’s married with five children – four sons and a daughter. Her very favorite place is The Marin Headlands overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco and the Pacific Ocean. She has the good fortune of being raised in Marin County. When not Wrapunzeling, she loves gardening, ceramics and genealogy.
Tzila – Packing Team
Tzila puts love and energy into every Wrapunzel package! She enjoys reading customer comments and making wishes come true (need JUST the right sari scarf? She’s your girl!). You’ll also recognize her lovely blue eyes from her tichel modeling for the store and Facebook page. Tzila is widely known for her empathy and caring, and she brings so much warmth and friendliness to Wrapunzel HQ! A former Girl Scout, Tzila loves cooking, being outdoors, and any kind of artistic project. When she’s not at Wrapunzel, look for her behind the pages of a favorite book, in the kitchen making something special, or painting pottery with her family and friends.
Meira – Events Coordinator
If you want to have a Wrapunzel event, Meira’s your woman. She knows firsthand how awesome they can be, so she’ll help you make that happen! Meira is a mother of three adorable children and wife to an awesome husband who, among other things, loves her wraps. When not working, she loves headwrapping, helping other women wrap, writing about how to look good within tzniut (traditional Jewish modesty), making jewelry, crocheting kippot (yarmulkes), reading (mostly non-fiction), watching Jewish music videos on youtube, cooking, washing dishes (sudsy water is fun), eating chocolate (within reason), and doing yoga (so that she can stay healthy and eat chocolate).
