KATIE CRAMER - founder 

Katie Cramer launched Lola & Ivy in early 2015 after freelancing in social media for a few years in the wedding industry. She grew her client list working with contemporary boutiques, brands and eventually local influencers. With a love for fashion and interest in the blogging world she transformed her company to solely focus on managing  influencers in the digital world. She and her team work manage a range of women in the fashion and lifestyle space.

Katie enjoys being able to work on the road and travels as often as possible! Being based in the San Francisco Bay Area, she frequents Napa & Sonoma counties often and also enjoys traveling across the US and Europe any chance she gets. On the weekends she can be found spending time with her dog and namesake, Lola, hiking, enjoying wine and attending Bay Area sporting events (Go Raiders & Warriors!). Be sure to follow Lola & Ivy on Instagram to see some of her life. 


SAMANTHA SCOTT - Influencer Marketing Manager

Born and raised in a small town near Knoxville, TN she went on to attend Middle Tennessee State University where she graduated with a degree in Music Business and Entrepreneurship. 

After college, Samantha moved to Nashville where she began her career in the public relations world at a record label.  Even though Samantha was in the music industry, she always had a pulse on all things fashion and lifestyle related.

In 2014, she and her husband were ready for a change, so they left the country music industry behind and moved their lives across the country to San Francisco. Samantha is elated that her passion for PR and fashion were able to join forces to land her dream job at Lola & Ivy.
