Because Jessica and I just celebrated our birthdays, we thought it was the perfect opportunity to shake things up, share a little bit about ourselves, and give you a peek into our lives behind the business.
The similarities between us are endless, including sharing the same alma mater (though we actually didn’t know each other in college); and to this day, our husbands claim that we sound and act exactly alike. And we really do! Down to our love of early lunches and an ice cold Coca Cola, Jessica and I have so much in common and work incredibly well together.
Our journey as colleagues and business partners began almost a decade ago, and today we share a bit about our backgrounds, how we met, and our answers to three surprise questions in order to delve a bit deeper into who we are as educators, business owners, and women.
