Dr. Lauren Fisher, the co-owner of Del Ray Psych and Wellness, has been elected the new president of the Del Ray Business Association.
“I am honored to be representing an amazing group of resilient, supportive, and community-oriented business owners,” Fisher said in a statement. “I look forward to helping our local businesses and community members adapt, evolve, and strengthen over this next year. In the words of Helen Keller, ‘Alone we do so little, together we can do so much.'”
Fisher, a clinical psychologist, takes over for Sue Kovalsky, who served in the role since 2018.
“Together, we have accomplished so much to get Del Ray on the map,” said Kovalsky. “We have great momentum, which will only continue under Lauren’s leadership.”
Mara Benner, the founder of Four Directions Wellness, was elected vice president.
“Homegrown Restaurant Group is looking forward to another great year from the DRBA under the leadership of Lauren Fisher,” DRBA member Bill Blackburn told ALXnow. “Her natural ability stewarding community events and fun is exactly what our community needs right now as we crawl out of the pandemic.”
Fisher made headlines last year when she offered online therapy at a reduced rate, in addition to helping form Del Ray’s Wellness District of healing businesses. She was named to the Alexandria Chamber of Commerce’s 40 Under 40 list in 2019, and last year received the Alexandria Chamber of Commerce’s Rising Star Business Award.
