Born in upstate New York and raised in Florida, Gwyn attributes her strong work ethic and desire to help people to her humble beginnings. Gwyn is a successful real estate developer and investor, restaurateur and business owner. She has built several multimillion dollar companies from the ground up and continues to build successful businesses through hard work and building high performing teams.
Although an accomplished entrepreneur, Gwyn is most proud of her non-profit endeavors. With a strong love for children, Gwyn created the Embrace by Grace adoption agency and placed thousands of deserving children with loving families all over the world in locations including Africa, Russia, South America and North America. Due to her tireless efforts, Gwyn was twice honored with the Angel in Adoption Congressional award. This distinguished award is only awarded to a select few and must be approved by over 150 members of Congress.
Gwyn is also a steward of education which led her to become a co-founder of Walking In Love. Walking In Love is a non-profit organization that provides tutoring services for disadvantaged kids in the Central Florida area. She was able to encourage students from the University of Central Florida to volunteer their time to tutor these kids. Walking In Love is still providing tutoring services in Central Florida nearly 15 years later.
Gwyn understands the importance of PIN and decided to become involved not only as an investor but as an active part of its growth. She states, “PIN is extremely necessary for minority-owned companies because it provides an educational platform and access to resources, including capital, to help them scale properly, become more visible and competitive in the trillion-dollar supplier industry.”
Even with a demanding schedule, Gwyn is an avid reader, enjoys traveling, working out and spending time with family and friends. She also gives back to her community through ministry and is part of several organizations that provide mentorship and entrepreneurial guidance to women and minorities.
Gwyn graduated from Palm Beach Atlantic University with a B.S. in Organizational Management and Behavior and a Master’s in Business with an emphasis in Leadership.
