OUR TEAM

Marla L. McDermott

Founder and President of The
Walnut Club, CEO of I Heart PHL

I’m a connector, community builder and change agent. The greatest asset in my life has always been the relationships I’ve had with my girlfriends. I founded The Walnut Club to bring extraordinary, career-driven women closer together and to fully support them professionally, culturally and emotionally.
