Tell us a little bit about your family and your Boss Mom journey.
Married for 15 years this July to my soulmate, Bruce, and mama to the cutest little wishes come true..Quincy (7) and Celia (2.5). I’ve had an entrepreneurial mindset for as long as i can remember. My career as an independent art consultant lasted for nearly 20 years.. designing art collections for high end hotels and resorts. When Quincy came along, I had everything dialed in perfectly to work 2.5 days per week and spend the rest of the time with him. The industry changed quite a bit over that time. Having become disenchanted with the business as it was, I decided to take some time off and contemplate my next move…which I knew would require something both rewarding and flexible. The ideas were always there for me, but the timing was finally right to start listening and acting.
