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 son.
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! She is also the warm voice of our customer service emails, regular contributor to social media, and tutorial creator. She is a conservatory-trained classical clarinetist married to a doctoral violin student. (Essentially this means she loves to geek out about composers that died generations before she was born.) Apart from music and Wrapunzeling, her interests include writing, reading, attempting to cook souffle, and sending silly cat/dog/hamster videos to Andrea. She loves sound, color, and words, in any combination.
Yedida – On-Site Coordinator
Yedida, aka Queen of the Tichel Room, is the woman who makes sure your tichels stay organized and get sent to all the right places! 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 – Director of Community Relations and Quality Assurance
Yehudis is Wrapunzel’s resident photographer! She is also our fabric genius, working with our seamstresses and suppliers to make sure everything is perfectly suited for headwrapping! Beyond that, she works with communities across the US and internationally to set up Wrapunzel events and local programs. Yehudis loves to travel and has visited 25 US states in almost as many years– 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.
Rachel – Social Media and Communications Specialist
Rachel generates our incredible newsletters, creates tutorials, writes for the blog, makes our YouTube channel beautiful, answers Facebook messages and emails, does Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter… did we miss anything? We’re pretty sure we did, and that’s because she does it all! She never fathomed she would one day reveal her face on YouTube for tichels, until a chance comment led her to Google, and she fell headlong into the Wrapunzel world! In addition to providing the “how-to” for all your head-covering needs, she keeps busy corralling her rambunctious son and dashing husband. When not browsing her local comic book store, she will work for Diet Coke and almost certainly out-word you in Ruzzle, all while dodging judgment from her disapproving rabbit.
Rivka – On-Site Assistant
Rivka keeps our stockroom and products in tip-top, organized 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
