We are located in the United States, with most of us residing in Boston, MA. We are constantly learning how to build and contribute to an empathetic, fun and hardworking team environment.
We love to have long thread discussions on Slack, educate our Operations Lead (the only white guy) on Asian culture and, of course, use our individual and collaborative strengths to develop this venture.
Meet Bekah, our Creative + Marketing Lead! She is a senior at Gordon College studying Sociology and Communication Arts.
WHY GENTLE? I believe very much in the power and necessity of empathy and am especially fascinated with how empathy can be made tangible and actionable through a variety of channels.
Meet April, our co-founder! She is currently part of Praxis’ Emerging Founders fellowship.
WHY GENTLE? The mission and message that this brand embodies has paved an own personal journey of coming to know more of what gentleness means and is. Hence, I have a lot of joy in creating something I want to share with others that is both impactful and beautiful.
Meet Ryan, our Operations Lead! He has a robust work background as a supply chain analyst.
WHY GENTLE? In a time when we are so well-connected on our phones but distant in person, Gentle showed me how to come along side next to a friend and show them I really cared. I want others to experience the same thing!
Meet Joy, our Operations team member! She is a rising sophomore at Babson College studying Business Administration.
SOMEONE WHO INSPIRES YOU? Someone who inspires me is Jesus! He was the kindest, wisest and strongest person who ever lived and is still alive :-)
Meet Kristine, our Events Director! She is a rising senior at Bentley University studying Marketing, Media and Communications.
WHY GENTLE? I think Gentle can be an overwhelmingly positive influence in people’s lives. I want to help communicate the idea that even the strongest of people need words of positivity, encouragement and compassion to keep going, and that they are capable of giving it, too.
Meet Daniel, our Finance & Analytics team member! He is a rising sophomore at University of Rochester studying Computer Science.
SOMEONE WHO INSPIRES YOU? Kevin Durant, for sure. Arguably the most talented player in the world, yet he takes SO MUCH undeserved criticism for switching teams. Regardless, he keeps his attitude consistent, focuses on his craft and stays locked in night in and night out. Such a humble guy.
