What would people be surprised to learn about you? This business is about so much more than the bottom line for me. It's about truly taking care of and uplifting my customers. It's about building a relationship with them and supporting companies that support and live up to positive ideals. It's about setting an example for my children and all others that we can all be happy with who we are and follow our dreams! None of this is predetermined by our gender, shape, size, color, background, location or any other reason society tells us we can't. I want people to know what my business is built on and what kind of company they are supporting.
