We are so fortunate to have these amazing entrepreneurs, businesswomen, and leaders as part of our community. As a fellow Woman of Workspace, I’m honored to share their stories with you and hope that you will consider supporting them should you require someone with their talents and expertise.
Diana Bagas founded Launch Social Media in 2016 to help businesses of any size compete online. She’s most proud of Launch’s reputation in the local community and of their long-lasting client relationships. By following its mission “to level the business world’s playing field through social media”, Launch is able to provide accessible, affordable, quality social media management services to its clients.
Justin: “I’ve known Diana for over five years. She has a singular focus on helping her clients make social media advertising an effective tool for their businesses, including mine!”
It’s no wonder that Diana was recognized as the 2019 Entrepreneur of the Year by the Metro South Chamber of Commerce.
Normally a resident of Milton, Diana can also be found working remotely in Spain for part of the year. She has been a member at our Canton location since 2018. You can check out the work Diana and her team of internationally-celebrated writers, editors, analysts, and designers have created here.
Carol Bramson is the founder of Side By Side pet food and has been running her business out of our Hingham location since May 2020. Side By Side takes a unique and personalized approach to dog food. After an assessment of your dog, they determine which diet (warm, cooling, or neutral) is best for your pup. Then they craft healthy recipes in small batches, carefully preserving the whole food nutrition and delivering it fresh to your dog’s bowl. What an innovative approach to getting the right -- and best -- nutrients for your pet to live their best life!
Justin: “Carol is an accomplished entrepreneur with a terrific track record of launching and managing businesses, it’s an honor to have her and her team be a part of the Workspace community.”

Diane McLevedge is the Financial Controller for the Council of Juvenile Justice Administrators. CJJA is a national non-profit organization formed in Massachusetts in 1994 to improve juvenile justice systems, services, programs, and practices so the youths within those systems succeed when they return to the community. They also assure that local correctional and residential facilities are secure, and, most importantly, provide leadership development to the individuals responsible for those systems of care to bring about the best long-term outcomes for the youth and their families. Diane has worked for the CJJA for nine years and assists other CJJA staff members throughout the United States.
Justin: ”It's been a pleasure getting to know Diane over the past several months. I support the work she and CJJA do for the troubled youth in our country as it is essential to improving their chances for success as adults.”
CJJA is addressing the reentry needs of youth in the juvenile justice system and reframing the way successful reentry outcomes are conceptualized. They are to be commended for leading the effort to get researchers, policymakers, and juvenile justice administrators to work together to facilitate reform in this area. To find out more, click here.

Justin: “I started working with Robin when one of my locations was seriously struggling. First, we created a marketing plan to generate leads, increase customer retention, and nail social media.
