Our Story

After 21 years in the consumer products industry, I made the decision to take off my corporate hat, and leverage the marketing knowledge I gained selling brands such as Gatorade, Bud Light and Campbell’s Soup.

I found an entrepreneurial spirit and passion I never knew existed working with small business owners, and running local community programs.
I am a proud graduate of Kingwood High School, and Texas Tech University.

I have been blessed to work one on one with leaders from Fortune 500 companies; Local businesses and Start ups.


In August of 2017 our home and business flooded four feet during Hurricane Harvey.  In a 48 hour period; we packed up what were able to save and moved our family and 100lb Rottweiler to Austin, Texas.  At the time we joked that our life would be referred to as “Before” and “After” Harvey.

We have been blessed to become members of the Horseshoe Bay, Community.

We began as a Facebook Group; Grew to a website; and opened our first store in April 2019!

We are not sure what the next chapter will bring…… But it’s going to be one heck of a ride.
