WHAT IS THE HARDEST THING YOU’VE EVER DONE – YOUR GREATEST CHALLENGE?
The greatest challenge in my life was launching my own brand. Putting my name on product was very exciting but also a scary time for me. Constantly creating new and fresh ideas across all of our categories and making sure to tell one brand story is exciting, yet challenging.
Pretty. There is an element of delight in all aspects of the brand and I think that beauty should be pretty. It should give us joy and please all of our senses. We always try to make sure that the design, packaging, texture and colors of our product always delight.
FAVORITE WORK OF ART?
My children’s poems. I framed them and have them throughout my kitchen.
Little Women because it’s an American classic.
