About us:

Founded in September of 2016, Babes Who Hustle is an online community for working women to connect and empower one another across all industries, professions, backgrounds and locations. We aim to inspire, celebrate and share an inside look into the day-to-day musings of babes who hustle around the world.

Founder, CEO + Editor: Chelsea DuDeVoire


Hi! I'm Chelsea,

a 24-year-old wannabe hustlin’ babe who graduated from Florida State University in 2015 with a B.A. in Editing, Writing + Media. I have a background in Copywriting and integrated marketing and currently work full-time in the Environmental Sustainability industry as a Project Coordinator as well as in freelance copywriting + editing when opportunities arise. 

Out of a little bit of curiosity (and a lot of selfishness,) I created BWH in an attempt to learn more about the career opportunities that are available to me, while meeting the ladies who are kicking ass in them every day. BWH is a safe, collaborative space where I hope to learn from you, while you (hopefully) learn from each other. I hope it inspires you to never stop asking questions, embracing opportunities, and celebrating one another. 

For collaborations and partnerships, email me at chelsea@babeswhohustle.com


Exec Assistant/Right Hand Woman: Mara Strobel-Lanka


Hello! I'm Mara,

a 21 year-old Michigan native who started my (mostly) adult life here in Jax, FL. I attended Jacksonville University but accidentally (on purpose) didn't finish my English degree and have since been working and supporting myself as Content Creator for Momni Boutique, and now Executive Assistant here at BWH!

My work includes curating social media posts/accounts, writing and editing blog posts, coordinating and pitching interviews, managing our BWH contributing writers, assisting with events, styling photoshoots, helping with administrative tasks and merchandise fulfilment, and assisting Chelsea in any way I can! My interests include intersectional feminism, sustainable living, and painting while I Netflix-binge. I’m here to write some, read more, and learn a whole bunch from all of you hustlin' babes.

Write me at mara@babeswhohustle.com!
