Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator
Brandon, Florida but serving stamping customers across the U.S.
I was born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago, IL and have crafted my entire life. I married the love of my life, Bob, in 1990 while I was living in Las Vegas, NV, working as an insurance broker. Bob was active duty USAF and we moved to Honolulu, HI, where I was first introduced to Stampin’ Up! at a home-based party. Just weeks later I signed up as a demonstrator, September 1998. In 2001 the USAF moved us again, this time to Florida, where Bob served then retired in 2003. We have one daughter, Gina, who works full time as a production manager.
My love for crafting hasn’t changed and I use Stampin’ Up! products exclusively to make cards, framed art and various 3D projects. I work my business full time, having earned numerous incentive trips. I’ve also earned the achievement of Founders Circle in 2013, 2014 and 2015. I placed #39 in the top 100 demonstrators worldwide in 2016 and #15 in the U.S. and #28 worldwide in 2017.
My passion is also as the assistant lead for the Ronald McDonald House on Davis Island in Tampa, FL, for which Stampin’ Up! is a global sponsor. Together with volunteers, we hand-stamp cards that are used by House guests during their stay. I love being a part of this worthwhile charity, giving back to my community and touching the lives of families.
