Experience Westfield: A Classic Town for Modern Families

Honoring the women leaders of downtown Westfield

Honoring the women leaders of downtown Westfield

These business owners and entrepreneurs represent just a handful of the women leading the way in downtown Westfield — and throughout the community. 

In honor of Women's History Month, we want to highlight the women making a difference and writing the history of our Westfield community. Their impact makes ripples — and sometimes waves — that are far-reaching. We've been awed in the last year at your strength and ability to flex to meet challenge after challenge with savvy, collaboration, creativity, and grit. 

Downtown Westfield has a growing base of women business owners, entrepreneurs and service providers who are not pictured, but who inspire us daily. 

Meet some of the women movers and shakers of downtown Westfield.
