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.
