HAVE WE MET?
We're Jasmine, Mollie & Rachel.
Jasmine Hathaway is the founder of Compass Coordinators, which is located in Charlotte, NC. In 2021, she won first prize in the national "Daring to Disrupt" contest for female entrepreneurs. The idea for starting Compass Coordinators came after her own experience with loss, when her husband Allan died of cancer in 2015.
Mollie Lacher is a Tennessee native with a master's degree in Leadership and Organizational Performance from Vanderbilt University. After the unexpected passing of her brother-in-law in 2017, Mollie left her project management career at Bridgestone to start Sunny Care Services and help other families like hers navigate all of the to-do's after losing a loved one.
Rachel Donnelly is a graduate of Agnes Scott College and serves on the Board of Directors of Love Not Lost, an Atlanta non-profit that provides free photography sessions for families facing terminal diagnoses. After her own experiences with loss, Rachel founded AfterLight to help clients stop wondering what they're supposed to be doing and get back to the things that matter.
