Paricia Benson is our Laner of the Week!

M / L

Originally from Cleveland, Paricia moved to NYC over 2 years ago to pursue a profession in the fashion industry. After graduating with an education in Retail Merchandising/ Fashion Product Development, she now works full time in the wholesale fashion industry. Paricia is a fairly new NYC Laner who joined the team in September. So far her favorite event was working with Bustle for the BareMinerals wellness crawl. It was a day full of mental/physical health activities, pampering and beauty! When asked about the Lane Paricia said, “After every gig I worked with ML, I can always say I ended my week on a high! I love the positive warm energy I receive from the team as well as the guest that are always energetic and having a great time. I am always so excited for every event so I can experience NYC gems that I otherwise would have known nothing about and to every Laner for making work feel like a team game with friends!”
