Laurie Cadman; Entrepreneur

I started working as a model, and an office administrator in 2002. I spent 17 years growing and developing with Gemini. I worked in areas of social media, content creation, people management, account management, creative direction, event production, international placement, accounting, photography, committee management, and even a little teaching and make-up artistry back in the late 2000’s! I had the pleasure of teaming up with Santa Claus for several years to ensure all of his visitors left with great memories and photos. 

I loved the upbeat environment and working with so many dynamic professionals of all levels! The challenge of multi managing several initiatives is invigorating. Every day was different and we were doing something that mattered, whether it be empowering people, raising money for the community, or even making dreams come true for prospective international models!

I have also had other odd jobs along the way such as; Photo coaching instructor, Runway and Confidence coach, photographer’s assistant, lighting assistant, slow-motion video booth operator, cashier, inventory stocker, santa’s little helper, sales, hostess, server, promotional staff, retail associate, brand ambassador, and spokesperson.

I love to connect awesome humans with each other. I really believe in synergy and good karma. I just love working with and surrounding myself with motivated Entrepreneurs! I often assist with tasks such as: social media, elevating branding and monitoring consistency, reviewing practices to build efficient workflow, bookkeeping, online accounting set-up, and all things content creation!
