Bella Sirpilla

Marketing Director, Laura of Pembroke

Bella graduated from High Point University in North Carolina with a degree in Biology & minor in Business Administration with plans to be a dentist. She attended The Ohio State University College of Dentistry in the fall of 2020. Bella learned that when you make a plan, God laughs, and as it turns out, although she loved dental school it was not the career path for her.

After leaving dental school, Bella was on a road to self discovery. She struggled with anxiety and depression from a very young age and internally felt a self-imposed pressure for perfection in all endeavors. Bella was granted time to address her challenges head on and heal from past traumas. Now, Bella wants to use the tools she has learned to help others feel loved, valued, and enough.

Bella is a speaker and the Marketing Director and Buyer at Laura of Pembroke, which offers stylish women’s clothing, gifts, home furnishings, and interior design services with locations in Canton and Cleveland, Ohio. Bella represents the third generation in her family business which just celebrated a milestone 35th anniversary.
