QueenCare Named Business Of The Month By Office Of Economic Development

April 3, 2019 - Queencare, a Seattle-based, luxury skincare brand, has been recognized by the City of Seattle’s Office of Economic Development (OEDD) as the Small Business of the month for April.

Small Business of the Month: QueenCare

April 2, 2019 - QueenCare in Seattle’s Columbia City neighborhood is much more than a beauty supply store. Opened in December 2018, QueenCare employs young women of color and provides them with mentorship, job training and support.

March 20, 2019 - Monika Mathews runs QueenCare, a luxury skincare brand, and Life Enrichment Group, a nonprofit organization that helps Seattle youth. Both ventures were inspired by the lessons she learned in her own life.

QueenCare Supports Youth Entrepreneurship,  Combats Gentrification

December 12, 2018 - QueenCare offers a line of skincare products at its new storefront at 3702 S. Hudson St. in Columbia City. But its mission runs deeper, providing mentorship for young women and fighting against the ongoing gentrification in the South End.


Monika Mathews celebrated her store with a grand opening Dec. 8, where she highlighted the work helping young women learn entrepreneurship.
