Executive Leadership Team


Kimberley G. Bueno

Founder & President

Kimberley G. Bueno is a California native with a passion to make people smile and make positive impacts in her community. When she is not volunteering for a few local charities (i.e., Wise Animal Rescue, Lunchtime Ministry to name a few), she runs a small pet care business, The Cuddly Cottage, where she spends her days taking care of animals. Kimberley just wanted to meet other female entrepreneurs for some support when she first started The Cuddly Cottage,  but she noticed there wasn't a platform easily accessible for her. She immediately started an online group initially called Hoboken/Jersey City Women Entrepreneurs, hosted her first networking event at Bwe Kafe in Hoboken, and from all the support and positive feedback she received from that event - she formed Women Entrepreneurs of Hudson County.


Rebecca Dowden

Vice President

I left my corporate job in Manhattan to follow my creative passion and build a business that allows me to use my background in marketing, business, design, and even architecture . I began helping entrepreneurs find their uniqueness and use it as the foundation for their brand strategy. I saw not only better visual results, but higher levels of confidence and success in those I worked with. ​Everyday, I push clients to think beyond their logo and to create a complete brand that drives emotional connection and lasting loyalty. We focus on the 3 c's of branding that I believe are essential in attracting more ideal clients: clarity, consistency, and communication. And after our work is done, clients will achieve the final C: Confidence.
