About Connie Lo:
Connie’s interest in natural skincare started at a young age, when she would whip up DIY face masks and concoctions for her skin after coming home from school. Her mom always stressed the importance of eating well and taking care of your skin, rather than covering it up with makeup.
Along with her love of natural beauty, Connie also grew up with a strong passion for entrepreneurship. Her first glimpse into the entrepreneurial world at the age of six was attending a business trip with her father to Chicago. From there, she was hooked. She frequently tagged along with her father to countries like Brazil, Germany, and Greece, and learned about branding and entering new unfamiliar markets. She knew that one day she would build her own company.
Throughout high school, Connie ran her own businesses, and was selected to ring the opening bell at the Toronto Stock Exchange based on her entrepreneurial spirit. Her thirst for business continued throughout her time at Queen’s University, where she joined and co-chaired an international entrepreneurs’ competition. After graduating with a Bachelor of Commerce, Connie wanted to combine her passion for wellness with female empowerment.
When a mutual friend introduced Connie to Laura, it was a match made in heaven!
At Three Ships, Connie focuses on strategic partnerships, vendor management, brand strategy, and marketing. In her free time, Connie enjoys traveling (her favourite spots so far include Morocco, Japan, and Prague), hitting up the newest fun restaurants and bars, practicing healthy living, and creeping on cute dogs.
