Meet the Team behind Blooms Privé
Sarah Coronado, Founder & CEO
Sarah has 12 years in project management at FireEye and Allied Telesis, but her passion for design and wellness served as the foundation for Lotus Premium Denim (her successful Kickstarter jean line), and Live Lotus, Silicon Valley's top yoga studio. Since opening Live Lotus in 2015, her mission has been to help women look and feel beautiful -- inside and out. Driven by kindness and creativity, she aims to share Blooms Privé with all women.
