Brenda - Founder
Brenda started Venus Rising™ as a way to empower women through the engine of conscious business, the power of immersive experiences and the beauty of inspiring storytelling.

May you receive the blessings from these magical talismans and resources from this sisterhood to live as your best and highest self. Let's all rise, together.

Sophia is a second-year student at UC Berkeley and a Bay Area native. She is interested in entrepreneurial endeavors with a special focus on philanthropy and giving back to her community. Through her involvement in community service, and her own creative fundraising efforts, she is able to give back to the women in her community and advance her personal mission of making the world a better place. She believes that kindness is contagious and through such altruistic acts, touching those that need a little uplifting, she can ignite a chain reaction. She joined Venus Rising™ because she hopes that through our products and experiences, women can walk confidently, with a little pep in their steps, allowing them to be the best version of themselves and spreading an infectious kindness to others in need.
Rebecca - Wordsmith
Growing up, Rebecca could often be found with her nose buried in fantastical stories of once insecure girls turned brave and beautiful heroines through their journeys to embrace their unique gifts and save the world. As she grew from girl to woman, she discovered a love for the jewelry that helped her embody the feminine power she felt within. Along her own heroine’s journey, she has found community to be a gift as precious as gold and seeks to use her own gifts to remind us that we are never alone. Rebecca joined Venus Rising™ in hopes of using her love of words to tell the story of each piece, so that when you adorn yourself with these talismans, you feel empowered to face your dragons… and make friends with them.
Roya - Community Manager
Roya is a creator, marketer, adventurer, curator of experiences, and plant-based lover of food.
She moved from San Francisco to sunny San Diego and bought several bountiful acres with her husband Josh where they run a boutique orchard in their free time.
She recently launched a new business Orange & Joon which sells handmade stained glass dried citrus slices from their orchard.
She is also currently working on a cookbook with her mom that will be focused on plant-based Persian food. When she’s not eating or cooking you can find her writing, creating content, taking a walk through her orchard, reading up on future trends, in the lab (her kitchen) inventing new recipes, or traveling to an exotic location on the search for the tastiest plant-based restaurants in the world.
She is also an advocate for female founders and business owners. She believes that the ultimate key to financial independence is creating passive income.
