Meet The Team
Founder and President
Karen Jang is BraCycle's Founder and President. A senior at Barnard College, she studies Biochemistry. Karen started BraCycle because she wanted to create a platform and community where women could donate and exchange bras, addressing the reality that while many women cannot afford or access bras, lightly worn bras go to waste. She dedicates every day to growing the impact of BraCycle in the NYC community and beyond.

She brings valuable professional expertise and life experience to the BraCycle team.
Director of Outreach and Volunteer Manager
Lake Garelli is the Outreach Director and Volunteer Manager at BraCycle. She is currently a senior at Columbia University, majoring in Environmental Biology with a concentration in German.
