Downtown Glen Ellyn: Grand Openings

I finally decided to take the big leap into entrepreneurship and open my own business. It has been my dream ever since I can remember. Over the years, I’ve been lucky enough to travel to some amazing places, and always find cute little shops. I wanted something where I could be creative, give back to the community, and make a living. As they say, “If you do something you love, you’ll never work a day in your life”. I am also very involved in animal rescue, and educating people on the plight of the most misunderstood breed, the “pitbull”. I have 2 rescues of my own, Max and Gobi.
