Bio
Arlene was the CEO of the country’s only state-licensed school for matchmaking. Under her leadership, the institution became a beacon of excellence, training hundreds of aspiring matchmakers worldwide. Arlene’s expertise and dedication to mentoring others in the field have shaped a new generation of matchmakers, each equipped with the skills to create lasting connections and foster love and belief in collaboration, not competition.

Continuously pushing boundaries and seeking new avenues to spread love and happiness, Arlene launched two groundbreaking initiatives; the Love Pro Mastermind Academy and the Worldwide Referral Network (WWRN) in tandem, where they refer daters seeking to hire a matchmaker. The WWRN has an extensive vetting process that ensures only the most ethical practitioners get referrals. Daters may also join at no cost for the opportunity to meet the VIP clients of the affiliate matchmakers.
