Louisville, CO Business Owners


The Louisville Business Network is comprised of small business owners from throughout Boulder County and the Front Range Area. We meet each Friday to exchange leads and participate in a 45 minute presentation or discussion. Each member will have the opportunity to give a 45 minute presentation to the group at least once a year, allowing us to get to know your specific specialties for top of mind referrals.

Each Louisville Business Network meeting starts with a one minute commercial given by each member. Share exciting new updates or promotions happening within your company and learn about small business events happening throughout the community. The Louisville Business Network, unlike some other lead groups, doesn't require a certain amount of leads to be exchanged per quarter, guaranteeing that the new business leads you receive here will be high quality referrals.

The Louisville Business Network does guarantee exclusive representation per business category. (Meaning, only business from a particular category may be a member of the group. i.e. One Realtor in the group at a time, one CPA in the group at a time, etc.) To see what business categories are already represented in our group, browse the members below.

Lauren Conley


COMPANY: Linen and Lavender Events 

CATEGORY: Event Planning 

 I like to party! I value experiences over the perfect bouquet of flowers, but if you should want a bouquet- those flowers are going to scream your name! My events are personalized because every event should be personal; they're bold because life is about being bold and adventurous; they're beautiful, because there's not a way to throw an ugly party!
Someone amazing and I am sure profound once said, "Life is too short to have boring parties," and I couldn't agree more!  I love to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, new babies and weddings, but I also love celebrating good friends, the changing of the seasons, and superheros-because why not!
My business has given me a second chance in learning what life is about and that's creating unforgettable moments with the ones you love and adore! I've been graced with the ability to meet amazing people in the work that I do and it's what continues to drive me to explore new styles and ideas. I love to get my hands dirty with my kids, sweat a little bit in the sun, and splash even when the water's cold.
I can't wait to work with you on your next great celebration! I've never met a party I didn't like (and didn't like planning)!

Michael Keilly


COMPANY: Michael Keilly Fiduciary Services, LLC

CATEGORY: Attorney and Fiduciary Services

 Born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, I moved to Colorado after a two week vacation at the age of 21. I fell in love with the people, landscape, and climate of Colorado and can hardly imagine living anywhere else. I enjoy traveling around Colorado and the Southwest.

Both when I travel and at home, I enjoy hiking, cross-country skiing, and cycling. I am also an avid nature photographer.

I have an undergraduate degree from St. John’s College in Santa Fe, New Mexico and a law degree from the University of Denver College of Law. During law school, I clerked for a small firm and continued on there and in my own office until 2001. In 2018, after almost 16 years running a successful restaurant, I decided to open a fiduciary practice (assisting people who are unable to manage their own affairs without help) and to return to the practice of law. I am able to use my legal training and my experience to help people manage their affairs and solve problems that have arisen in the legal arena, particularly with respect to estate planning.

Rachel Rohrig


COMPANY: Market Real Estate

CATEGORY: Commercial Real Estate 

I am an enthusiastic, hard-working, entrepreneurial individual with a generous spirit and contagious zest for life. After running my own business for almost six years, I developed the stamina and grit it takes to meet any challenge put before me and creatively and successfully resolve every roadblock I may encounter. I've learned not only what it takes to be a boss, but more importantly what it takes to be an admired leader and team builder. Being a business owner taught me tirelessly to be patient, to overcome adversity, how to hone my interpersonal skills and the balance of juggling many things at once.

After living outside Colorado for the past six years and reaching the goals I had set for my business, I am ready to put roots back down in my home state and embark on a new career in real estate – something I have always has a keen eye toward precisely because it all empowers me to combine my boundless passion for people and for business.
