Growing up on Long Island, I pursued various interests: singing, playing musical instruments, writing, art, and foreign languages--among them, French. Study abroad in Aix-en-Provence, France, my junior year in college gave me invaluable practical speaking experience and put a mulitcultural spin on my education. Living in such an aromatic area and visiting Grasse for the first time, it's not surprising my passion for scent was stoked. But it would be many years after I graduated from Williams College and left its purple mountains' majesty before I would investigate perfume further.
I moved to North Carolina in the mid-nineties and, while learning all I could about perfuming as a hobby, transitioned from freelance copy editing and proofreading to in-house production work for Oxford University Press. A one-year transfer to England allowed me several visits to France and the planting of the seed for opening my own fragrance studio, a dream that was finally realized in July 2015.
Now, I not only work in but also live in Cary, with Dennis--a wonderful man I wish I'd met decades earlier--and our two dogs and one cat. I serve on the Board of Directors for the Business & Professional Women's Association of the Triangle (BPW) and the Heart of Cary Association. I'm also an active member of Shop Local Raleigh, the Women Business Owner's Network (WBON), and the Cary Chamber of Commerce. I'm passionate about strengthening the local economy and in women lifting each other up in their careers and personal lives.
