About this event

D'Shawn Russell founded Southern Elegance Candle Company to remind everyone of our shared history and cultural experiences through the creation of unique candle scents named after Southern cities and favorite things. 

In the wake of COVID-19, D'Shawn could have thrown up her hands and quit, but she didn't. Instead, she made a pivot, got laser focused and thrived. D'Shawn will share how her resilience is manifesting in her best revenue to date.

    Southern Elegance Candle Company

    Founder and CEO

    Founder and CEO, D’Shawn Russell is a true southern belle. Growing up in a small town in North Carolina, she spent summers picking homegrown fresh fruit, swimming in the ocean during the day, and catching lightning bugs at night. As an adult, she held on tight to her sacred memories of attending church all day with her grandmother and then settling in to eat a satisfying meal made with love.
