How would you describe yourself?
Happy & dedicated mom to 3 wild and wonderful boys and wife of over 20 years to my very best friend.

How long have you been involved in your business?
Since almost the very beginning. O2 began in January of 2012 and I became a Designer in March of that same year.

What keeps you motivated?
I love helping people express who they are with a gorgeous creation that is as unique as they are. Their stories are my motivation.

Tell us a little about your family.
My 3 boys continue to be the excitement in my world. Each and every day is an adventure, a challenge and a blessing. My husband is the glue that keeps us together. As busy as he is, he has never once been too busy for his family. He is always there for us and we are extremely grateful.

How do you prioritize family and your business?
Family always comes first and, thankfully, my family is very supportive of my business and play a big role in my success.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
I truly see myself being with this company for the long haul. I’ve been here since the beginning and I love watching the direction this company is headed.

Biggest life lesson learned?
There are things that are beyond your control. My dad always said, “The main thing is… don’t get excited” and more than anything, “Go gently”. To me, those statements mean to remain calm, stay realistic in your expectations and go through life gently because karma can be brutal.

Biggest lesson you’ve learned in business?
I’ve learned that I am much more outgoing than I ever gave myself credit for and it’s true what they say… when you love what you do, it never really seems like work.

What is your secret to success?
A positive attitude

All Entrepreneurs encounter bad days. How do you handle yours?
Honestly?… on my back patio with a nice cold beer.

What was your sweetest success story?
A woman at an event began looking at our charms and suddenly burst into tears. She created two identical lockets for her nieces. Each with our ‘In Memory Of’ charm, the ‘Dad’ charm, their birthstones and our ‘Family’ charm. Through tears she explained that their father, her brother, had passed and for years she had been looking for something to give his girls, her newly adopted daughters, in his memory. She was so happy to have finally found that perfect something.

How do you relax?
Honestly?… on my back patio with a nice cold beer. 😉
