 Cat Parks is the founder of Grl Pwr L.A. Parks created Grl Pwr LA in 2019 after moving to Los Angeles to pursue her career in music and modeling. Little did she know she would soon discover her true calling. Creating community through safe spaces for women of all different backgrounds to feel valued and supported while fostering self-love and respect. 

After great success from the first sold-out Grl Pwr LA workshop held in May 2019, Cat continued to build her online community, a private Facebook group for like-minded women to meet and connect, network, and support one another. With Grl Pwr LA quickly gaining 1,000 + members online from all around the world and attracting members from California, London, Argentina, & West Africa and her first workshop reaching seating capacity, Cat knew this was a huge need being filled and it couldn’t just end right there with one event. Cat went on to curate more workshops and events focused on self-love for the community in Los Angeles and each one reached seating capacity. Cat went on to establish the Grl Pwr LA corporation as a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization within Los Angeles in March of 2020. 

After seeing the impact her workshops had on women in Los Angeles Cat instantly knew this is what she was born to do and it was time to expand to reach more women and give them this strong sense of community and support they had been desperately searching for. Cat is using the success of her growing female movement and self-love tribe to expand taking the workshops to cities like Atlanta, Cincinnati, Chicago, and eventually abroad. 

Cat is still modeling and making music yet plans on using her platform from GrlPwrLA to create opportunities for female artists and musicians to be heard. With her growing community of empowered women supporting one another, it’s exciting to see what this community of women accomplishes next. Cat says Grl Pwr LA's purpose is to create safe spaces for women to feel valued, loved, and supported while unlocking the tools and resources needed to discover their inner Queen!
