What inspired you to start your business?

Looking at the market in my area and seeing a void for nontraditional and out of the box couples. I was able to solve a problem that existed and create a business that represented both who I am and what they want.

What is something you would say to someone who is struggling in their first few years of business? Is there something you struggled with and learned from in those first few years?

Lean into whatever makes you different. That thing that you think is a downfall is really your asset. With enough work, time, and passion, you will get there! Finding a community changes that game.

What hobbies, causes, or activities are you passionate about aside from your work?

Animal rescue is big for me. When I had more free time, I was at a local animal shelter or park every weekend helping dogs get placed in loving homes. A percentage of each sale goes to the ASPCA. In my life I have had 32 dogs and loving and being loved by a pet has taught me so much about how to treat others.
