This week’s Badass Chick is Helen Walsh of Milton, creator of Love Jane.
Helen has two daughters and began noticing that when her daughters’ friends first got their periods, they were very ill-prepared. Whether it was that some of the girls hadn’t had a great talk with their parents, or some of the products the girls were using just didn’t work well, she knew that reaching that milestone is much better if you’re prepared.
So Helen went to work and created Love Jane, which offers First Period Kits and individual products for girls. Helen makes stylish kits for girls to take with them so that they feel confident and prepared with everything they could possibly need. She also offers a monthly subscription so that you never run out and are all set – no more surprises. One of my favorite things that Helen focuses on for Love Jane’s mission is working to normalize the conversation, especially with dads. She has a whole section of the web site dedicated to helping dads walk through that process.
I love that Helen wanted to make a better experience for her daughters and their friends, and that experience has expanded to helping girls everywhere. For that, she’s my Badass Chick of the Week!
