Venue Coordinator Extraordinaire

Rachel Robson

Interior designer turned serial entrepreneur, Maureen is a proud Lakewood resident who’s constantly inspired by the amazing community she’s come to know since starting her first creative business 12 years ago.

In 2016, Maureen brought Cleveland movers & makers together by curating a holiday pop-up shop called Home for the Holidays. The community response was incredible, and after the success of season three, she couldn’t shake the desire to contribute more to her community.

Maureen decided to bring her interior design background together with her love of hosting & gathering with people, and from that, The CoLab was born. The CoLab has since grown into Cleveland’s premier boutique event venue, with even more exciting growth on the horizon.

Beyond her businesses, Maureen is the proud parent of two fab kiddos who fuel her love of coffee and new adventures. You can find her cheering on her sons' baseball & soccer teams, sampling local craft beer and exploring all that the greater Cleveland area has to offer.
