I am a mom, wife of 18 years and a creative through and through.
I have 4 kiddos ranging from 23-10, I often laugh and say we knew we were in trouble when we had to stop and buy diapers before going and ordering our oldest class ring. But, I wouldn’t trade it for anything. Our two “littles” as we call them we were both welcomed into our family through adoption. One is internationally adopted from the Philippines and the other was a private domestic adoption.
Our adoption story is what pushed me from being scared to running two successful Brick and Mortars in the town I grew up in.
If someone would have told this to me almost 7 years ago I would have laughed but God had greater plans then I had ever at the time dreamed of.
I grew up loving art and design and I even received a full ride to college on an Art scholarship. I turn it down (that’s a whole other story) and like most started adulthood thinking I knew everything. I later went back to school and received a degree in Elementary Education and taught Kindergarten and First grade.
Design for me was and still is like breathing. My passion for design started early and I enjoyed using it in my home and for friends. I quickly fell in love with painting furniture too and between both these loves and business was created. Which took me from selling to friends to a booth, to owning two Brick and Mortars.
Today, I am so excited where my entrepreneurial spirit has taken me. I have sold my two Brick and Mortars recently and am changing my path to focus on Business Coaching and help other small business owners!
Thank you for coming along this crazy, wonderful, full of surprises life and business!
