JENNIFER ARMBRUST is the founder and director of Sister. She cultivates teaching and tools for the feminine economy, practices embodied business, and runs Feminist Business School. Her work explores the collisions and collusions of art, business, gender, embodiment and economics.
Armbrust has 15 years of entrepreneurial experience, as owner or partner of 5 businesses. She has been advising entrepreneurs since 2012. Formerly the proprietor and director of a fine art gallery, founding partner of an online arts magazine, managing director of an arts nonprofit, principal of a small interactive design studio, and head of her own creative consultancy, Armbrust has long been interested in the intersections of business and art and more recently, business as art.
She holds a degree in Critical Theory from The Evergreen State College with continuing studies in small business administration (Portland Community College), interactive design (Pacific Northwest College of Art), and healing arts (Lotus Lantern Healing Arts). She lives in Topanga Canyon, California, where she is lovingly devoted to surfing 3-foot right point breaks, while dreaming of the elusive left.
AMELIA HRUBY provides strategic support at Sister. With a background in academic feminist study, she uses her skills in creative direction, communications, and facilitation to cultivate critical conversations around the roles of gender, labor, and art in our working lives. Amelia works with Sister’s student community and consulting clients to nurture productive, feminist reflection on vision and values and to engineer creative, strategic solutions to business problems. She lives in Chicago, where she spends the colder months curled up with her cat, Wilco, and the warmer months taking long walks to the lake.
