Proud Minnesota Mama of three little girls and a loving INTP personality type hubby. I listen to audio books when I run, refrain myself from daily mochas stops at Caribou to only on special occasions, and am an optimist at heart with infectious positive energy brought into any environment. This energy often leads to inaudible voice & text messages as I talk superfast and skip spell check when I am excited. I am working daily to be mindful to ensure I am leveraging my gifts to make a difference. We are all in this thing called life together; we all get one chance – lift each other up, let your light shine & love hard.
Why do you think it’s important for people to shop local?
To improve the local economy & Environmental Sustainability: When a consumer buys local, significantly more of that money stays in the community. Local stores help to sustain vibrant, compact, walkable town centers-which in turn are essential to reducing sprawl, automobile use, habitat loss, and air and water pollution.
What’s the most memorable experience you’ve had working with a customer?
Working with clients on projects in all shapes and sizes is invigorating. One of the most memorable experiences was helping a client’s transformation of an extra bedroom that was used as a catch all into a dedicated guest room for visitors and a craft room. This individual loved doing crafts projects of all kinds. It was a stress relief and brought her much joy.
