“Our mission is to create a space where women find a community to feel their most inspired, dynamic and supported self.”
– Erin Hohnbaum and Natalie Ghidotti, Co-Founders
Erin Hohnbaum considers herself an entrepreneur that builds companies that empower women through community, camaraderie and clothing. As Owner, Founder and CEO of E.Leigh’s Contemporary Boutiques and Co-Founder of PowHer Players women’s community, Erin lives out her passion of creating spaces where women uncover their best selves.
In 2011, at the age of 26, Erin left her public relations career to start an online women’s accessories business. A decade later, E.Leigh’s has grown into a multi-state operation, with locations in Kentucky and Arkansas, serving thousands of customers annually. E.Leigh’s was selected as the number one place to shop in Little Rock by Southern Living Magazine, among winning countless other local and regional awards.
Erin believes strongly in giving back to her community. While she donates to numerous organizations annually, her main focus is on the Rescue Road organization and the Dorcas House women’s shelter. Erin was named to Arkansas Business’ Top 20 in their 20’s and a 2012 Soiree Woman to Watch. She currently resides in Little Rock, Arkansas with her husband, son & two rescue pups.
