Arielle Winfield is a dynamic entrepreneur with a Wall Street background in Private Wealth Management Marketing. Now, Winfield is a tech founder & CEO, an independent consultant, content creator, and public speaker focused on the intersection of business and wellness.
As an Ivy League and MIT educated creative, STEAM (Science, Tech, Engineering, Art, Math) nerd, former 2-sport Division 1 athlete, mental health advocate, world traveler, and fashionista, Arielle is motivated by helping people achieve their own version of freedom through financial independence and ownership.

Arielle founded The Happy Mask Store in April 2020 in order to help address the massive PPE shortage due to the novel Coronavirus. Founded on a philanthropic mission of donating a mask for every two masks sold, The Happy Mask Store achieved a global presence and sold thousands of reusable, cotton face masks. She successfully sold the business for a profit less than 2 years later.
Arielle founded Sessions LLC in April 2019. The Sessions mobile app is a new model for creatives to monetize their work and for brands to find relevant influencers. Our beta will launch in the next few months. Sign up for the waitlist to gain early access!

While studying at the University of Pennsylvania, Winfield began building her fashion & lifestyle blog, Heylifestylee, and has grown her following to almost 10,000 across her blog and social media.
