Being a bit of a renaissance woman and having a lot of siblings! To explain... I am a graphic designer with a background in Web development, which puts me in the unique position of being able to design and develop product as well as develop and manage our online store. Having seven snarky siblings, I am never at a loss for new ideas.  They are incredibly supportive.
