Birds Of A Feather was founded  by Candice Yusim Maskell and Julie Hovsepian, executives from the Music, Entertainment and Tech industries with expertise in marketing Fortune 500 brands & world-renowned recording artists. Greatly influenced by the positive impact yoga, meditation and and overall wellness has had on their lives, they created a platform to share the important practices they so deeply believe in with others. In January 2016, Julie spread her wings to create In A Golden State, while Candice continues to lead our flock.  Since inception, Birds Of A Feather continues to soar and collaborate globally with top wellness brands, influencers and thought leaders in the space.
