Current role: Co-Founder of Marketing Divaz
Background: Eight years with the Greater Boca Raton Chamber of Commerce, followed by West Palm Beach Community Redevelopment Agency. Then she started Marketing Divaz, saying: “I love business. I love marketing and I am passionate about helping people achieve their dreams.”
Biggest challenge: “Staying laser focused. Like most entrepreneurs, there are unlimited opportunities that get thrown at us every day and while sometimes my first reaction is, ‘Fun. I would love to do that.’ I know I need to stay focused in order to reach my goals.”
Key business partner: Business partner Jenn Schnipper, who “pretty much rocks.” Marketing Divaz recently merged with Juicy Results and CEO Jeremy Pound has “taught me a lot,” Volman says.
Products or service: Full-service internet marketing firm offering search engine optimization (SEO), social media and website development. A four-week coaching/training program helps businesses implement strategies on their own.

Favorite female role model: Inventor and entrepreneur Lori Greiner – “one savvy entrepreneur.”
The actress best able to portray me: Kate Hudson
Favorite local restaurant: DADA in Delray Beach, but Farmer’s Table in Boca is quickly becoming a favorite.
Favorite beverage: A shaker cup full of water or a lychee martini for cocktails.
Hobbies: Yoga, reading, writing and meeting and hanging out with creative people, including friends on Kickstarter.
Workout routine: Gym routine early in the morning and yoga.
Philosophical quote: “Don’t wait for permission to go after your dreams. Just start.”
