June Chow is an entrepreneur based in Dallas. She has spent the past 14 years in the world of design, manufacturing children’s accessories and apparel. Currently, she is a partner in a children’s shoe company that sells under the boutique label, 2 Scoops Shoes. Her experience is broad in the area of manufacturing and design. She frequently travels to Asia for sourcing and development of new products.
June graduated from Wellesley College with a degree in Biology and French and promptly began her career in a research lab at Columbia University. While following the well-trod path that should have led to medical school, June was waylaid by, what started out as a favor for her brother, but eventually grew into her first business, designing and manufacturing shearling and suede apparel. Having grown up in an entrepreneurial family, she gravitated toward the challenge of building a business based on fresh ideas and new products. Her analytical approach to design merges form, function and purpose, a philosophy that guides much of her work.
June handles event planning and community outreach for Gendap and also serves as liaison to the arts community. She helped gather the thousands of baby booties needed to create the powerful visual and visceral experience that will be embodied in the Gendap art installation.
June lives in Dallas with her husband. They both enjoy the chaos of everyday life with their precious son and equally precious daughter.
