Jasmine Hathaway is the founder of Compass Coordinators, which is located in Charlotte, NC.

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.
