Geller Law Group President and CEO, Rebecca Geller, recently was honored as Woman Business Owner of the Year at the National Women’s Business Conference hosted by the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO).

This prestigious award reflects not just excellence in business acumen but the ability to innovate, problem-solve, and significantly contribute to the community.

Earlier this year, Rebecca, was the recipient of the Woman Business Owner of the Year Award from NAWBO’s DC Chapter.

Being selected as NAWBO National’s 2023 Woman Business Owner of the Year Award is extremely meaningful to Rebecca. “It’s inspiring to be part of a group of women who are really pushing the envelope of what women business owners can accomplish,” she says.

A lengthy list of national submissions was narrowed down to a Top 10 Class and then down to 3 powerhouse finalists. Amongst a highly accomplished pool of nominees, Rebecca emerged triumphant, besting the other finalists and securing the national title.

NAWBO, an organization at the forefront of representing the interests of women entrepreneurs, held its annual conference in Austin, TX. The Woman Business Owner of the Year Award was sponsored by Bank of America.

Rebecca founded The Geller Law Group in 2011 with a distinctive business model promoting work-life balance and offering an environment where lawyers can pursue their professional aspirations without compromising their family life.

This innovative approach has heralded recognition from major publications such as The New York Times, Forbes, and the Washington Business Journal. Notably, the firm employs 33 personnel, all of whom are women.

Further extending her influence, Rebecca has tirelessly supported her community through volunteer work, fundraising, and donation collection efforts; promoted women’s economic issues; advocated for public breastfeeding in Virginia; and taken an active stand for federal and state policies on paid family leave.

The exciting moment of Rebecca’s win, shared with 21 fellow NAWBO DC members, was one of intense pride. Rebecca’s acceptance speech was more than timely; it was touching, as she paid tribute to her grandparents, who built businesses in the U.S. after fleeing Nazi Germany. Her moving story garnered widespread appreciation, shedding light on her unwavering resilience and providing inspiration during a significant time for the Jewish community.
