What do you enjoy most about working at RP?
The amazing people that I have the privilege of working with makes my work more fun because we share amazing ideas and most of all we laugh a lot. That was always important to me no matter where I am.
Can you tell us a little bit about how you got into your line of work that lead you to RP?
I started a part time sewing business while working at an accounting firm about 6 years ago. As I continued to fall more in love with crafting and sewing for my family. I stumbled across a few of Rebecca Page patterns that were size appropriate for one of my clients. She and I both were so pleased that I signed up for the email mailing list. A few months later I became a brand ambassador and soon after that I accepted a job in Customer Support. Sewing brings me so much joy and has been such a therapeutic outlet for me and has helped mend my heart in countless ways. I am so blessed to have found a company that core values, brand, and vision fits my life as a stay home mom, homeschooler, business owner and wife. It truly is an answered prayer.
What qualifications do you have/ courses completed?
Since I learned how to sew as a child and picked it up again later in life I have stayed committed to learning and have taken lots of online courses to advance my skills and continue to grow toward providing more professional made garments and crafts as a whole.
