Artist, Researcher, Lover of Science and Hippy at Heart.
I grew up post 60s in a household where fitness, nutrition, and education were our foundation. My father was a scientist, athlete, supporter of classical arts, and a health food fanatic. Bee pollen, wheat germ oil, molasses, and yogurt started our day. As did working out. We swam, ran, cycled and competed in just about everything. My father spent his life imparting his wisdom onto us, fostering a love for learning and a desire for healthy living. This passion still burns strong in me. I am passionate about learning, creating, and like my father sharing my knowledge.
From the beginning I was encouraged to explore my creative side. I painted, sewed stuffed animals and quilts, learned pottery and went crazy for mosaics. I also had a love for science. I earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business from USC and a Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing from Johns Hopkins University. I worked my way through college tutoring science courses and organizing journals in the medical library where I would get lost in the stacks reading research. I’ve worked in the corporate world, owned my own restaurant, loved working as a Labor & Delivery Nurse, and seriously loved teaching Nursing at our local community college. But nothing compares to what I am doing now.
How did I end up being a soap maker? It’s a long story but I love to tell anyone who will listen “I finally figured out what I want to be when I grow up.”
Today, my dream is to share the luxurious world of hand-crafted soaps with you. To share my love of science and art. I'm pretty sure you will love my soap creations, not just because they are beautiful but because they are good. My goal is for you to say, “this is the best soap I have ever used”. That means you have used it. And for that I say Thank you!
