About Gwendolyn

I am sincerely interested in starting and growing a business that I am truly passionate about. Without a doubt, I am passionate about health, fitness and wellness. I'm open to other industries; I admire technology and the IT industry. I'm open to joining you with your idea, or we can collaborate an amazing idea together.

In brief, I have about 3 years of project management experience in the construction industry. I've worked with a couple of people on CoFoundersLab, and co-founded a mentoring site. In college, I worked with multi-disciplinary engineering team to propose the idea of creating a shipping container into a medical clinic for natural disasters; we won $1,000 of funding from school program.

If you're interested in seeing if there's a fit and trust in being potential co-founders, please message me or contact me via gwendolyn.torrens@gmail.com. Thank you.
