Realtor, Shopkeeper, Furniture Transformers + Design lover!
It all started back in 2010 - Newly married and gutting my second fixer upper in Virginia. I was buying vintage furniture and painting it for our home (which I had done for years)...next thing I know my biz mind took over and I was selling my furniture on Etsy and locked in the exclusive right to sell the hottest new DIY product on the market "Chalk Paint". Over the next 11 years I would open multiple retail stores, teach classes, get my Real Estate license, start offering Design Services + Custom Furniture Painting, renovate another house and have 4 wild kids.
If you are interested in learning more about my crazy life hop on over to the PODCAST - KEEPIN' IT REAL WITH STYLISH PATINA. I share my story and the twists and turns of my business over the years. I also interview local small business owners and talk to them about how they got started and the lessons they learned along the way!
FINDING INSPIRATION FROM LIVING A SIMPLE LIFE.
Vintage modern style. Your home should be a reflection of the things you love.
What is Stylish Patina all about? Honestly it's just about helping people find a house they like + turning it a home they LOVE.
I feel lucky to have been able to create a business out of what I love to do. My dad introduced me to the Real Estate world when I was young and both my parents love antiquing. So I guess it's not surprising that I am a realtor + own a home decor business.
I started out in Corporate America and worked my way up the ladder. I got my MBA and then bailed on it all to follow my dreams. I guess it paid off!
