From Corporate to Startup

From Corporate to Startup

After 18 years as director of marketing for Fisher-Price, Kirsten DiCarlo took the entrepreneur’s leap of faith to start her own company, FabUBus Mobile Spa. Unable to get a manicure during a particular busy time at work, a friend joked to Kirsten, “Too bad the manicure couldn’t come to you.” From that little comment came forth Kirsten’s big idea – a mobile salon! She realized that it wasn’t just working women who would enjoy mobile spa services; there were stay-at-home moms juggling many priorities, elderly women and disabled women who lack transportation, students stuck on campus without a vehicle, and high school girls who want to get together to do hair and makeup before a big dance.

Why am I part of BNC...

You may be wondering if NYS Women Inc. is a good use of your valuable time. It is. I've been a member since 1999 and have made great contacts, great friends, learned a lot about a variety of topics and enjoyed wonderful food. What else could be worth only a couple hours of your time per month?

Women In Leadership Award


April 2017 Honoree

Rosanna Berardi
Berardi Immigration Law, Managing Partner


Berardi Immigration Law is a business immigration law firm that helps individuals and corporations obtain work permits, green cards and citizenship.

After spending five years working with the former INS and six years at a large law firm in Buffalo, Rosanna decided to start her own firm in 2005. It was a huge risk, since she had a very secure job. Rosanna wanted to do things “my way” so she started her firm, alone out of an apartment in Williamsville. Twelve years later, they have 9 full-time and 3 part-time employees and offices in Buffalo, Toronto, Newport Beach, California and London, England.
