THE ARTIST

“When I was 22, I learned how to quilt the traditional way from my grandmother. That summer changed my life – learning a time-honored tradition while spending time with one of the most important women in my life.   For me, it was a new creative awakening.”

THE CREATOR

“In today’s crazy world people are looking for unique and long-lasting ways to connect, to be present even when they cannot, and to inspire themselves and those they love. I want to help fulfill those needs.”

THE FOUNDER

“I created #theintentionalpauseTM for one purpose – to empower women to follow their dreams using the power of the pause. I want to equip every woman with the partnership and support she needs to pursue her desired life.”

The Founder

THE ADVOCATE

“I care deeply about the future of our girls. That is why with every purchase of my products, I give back to organizations that make a difference in the lives of girls and young women.”
