Episode No. 40, Sarah Feingold and Breen Sullivan, The Fourth Floor
Women in Law - On The Record
This was a special interview and experience for me as we recorded this episode from MMLaFleur’s Bryant Park store in New York City. That night we shared the stories of these two inspiring women, brought female executives and lawyers together, and supported a great cause--Bottomless Closet. The Bottomless Closet experience is all about helping women in need feel confident, prepared, and empowered to ace their job interviews, start a new job, and begin their journey to self-sufficiency. For more information about the organization go to bottomlesscloset.org. I had such a wonderful time getting to know Sarah and Breen. Sarah is the former general counsel of Etsy, was their 17th employee, and helped take the company public. After nine years, she decided to leave to find her next adventure. That’s when she met Breen Sullivan. Breen is the Chief Administrative Officer and General Counsel for Watermark Insights, an education technology company. Together, the two created The Fourth Floor, an invite-only ecosystem that connects female founders to industry leaders and general counsel who serve as valuable business strategists for growth.
