About Us

Parlay House is a community of inspirational women who come together to connect, grow, learn, and thrive. We take our life experiences and parlay them in new directions. We host monthly events in San Francisco and New York, and are growing to other cities soon!

About Our Founder

Anne Devereux-Mills started Parlay House to create new connections and interesting experiences outside of our work, children, or partners.

As a single mom and top executive in New York's cutthroat advertising scene, Anne experienced her own share of challenging times.

It wasn't until she was diagnosed with cancer for the fourth time and moved across the country that she realized what was missing in her life: connection.

Anne began inviting women into her living room to talk about the real issues they face, focusing on connecting instead of networking. Parlay House was born.
