I remember so clearly sitting in my cubicle and reading my first blog, Cupcakes and Cashmere. It was my first job out of college, a young girl living in a new city (Chicago <3) and I absolutely hated what I was doing. With a fierce determination to make my days move swiftly, I created an enjoyable morning ritual – coffee, C&C, more coffee, then begrudgingly, work. Fast forward 7 years later, and I found myself back in my home state of Florida, newly married and at a job I enjoyed. But something was still lacking. The passion and curiosity I so proudly had was waning with each new move and new job. Something needed to change.
It was over breakfast with my family, in a First Watch of all places, when WisConcierge was officially born – paper napkin and all. Conscious of the impending move in my future was what propelled me to move forward with my dream of creating something I could cultivate, grow, and call mine. Florida had been my home for most of my life, aside from my brief stint in the mid-west. It felt right, almost as if things came full circle. WisConcierge was created where I, myself had sunny beginnings.
Well friends, that is my story in a nutshell. I can’t help but find myself giddy with anticipation to see where this passion project takes me! New friends, new soil, and fresh opportunities to harness my passions and feed my restless soul.
