What is your favorite restaurant and why?
The Local. I like it because they use products from local farmers and they have a really diverse menu.
Have you had a boss, or colleague who you admired? If so why?
I would say my husband Kevin. He and I started the business together and Kevin apprenticed, while I was at Purdue, he apprenticed to be a furrier. So he didn’t have a formal education per say, because there’s no school that you can go to to learn how to be a furrier. Every time I do a fashion show or whatever I always say that I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for him, because we have based our business model off of the experience he got from his apprenticeship.
What do you do in your spare time?
I like to read. I enjoy being with my family. I’m an HGTV addict, I love HGTV.
What is your favorite type music?
I like a little bit of everything. I like jazz, country, some classical and Christian music. I listen to K-LOVE radio.
What do you like most about your community?
I like the family-owned businesses. Even though Westfield is a city now I still feel like it has that warm close knit feel to it.
