BOSSY is a networking group founded by Kelly Metras (Salena’s Restaurant, Nox Cocktail Lounge) and Kelly Bush (Marshall Street Bar & Grill) in 2013. The goal is to unite women business owners and entrepreneurs with old school networking events and education.

Our monthly social events are free to attend. There is no obligation to refer, no formal structure to follow. They are filled with sharing, meeting, and learning about other women living their dreams. We learn from one another.

In addition to the social events we host, we have educational workshops 4 times per year. These events are aimed to present rich, relevant content for women business owners in a casual environment. Some examples of professional contacts that we bring in are HR executives, social media and advertising specialists, professional development and wellness experts, and more.

BOSSY board members: Erika Sorbello (Gallery Salon), Kelly Bush (Marshall Street Bar & Grill), Kelly Metras (Salena’s Restaurant & Nox Cocktail Lounge) and Rebecca Natalie Fien (Web designer, RochesterWebGirl.com)
