Katie's story

I was born in Chicago, and lived in three different states before I was six years old. My parents divorced when I was eight years old, and while my mother did her best raising my sister and I, I always found it difficult to nail down my passion. Our family was constantly trying to keep our heads above water. When I was 20, I moved back to Chicago with very few possessions and no job. I worked my way up in different companies and to a salary I never thought I deserved growing up. I was forced to be the drive my own dream, and work for my own goals. No one was going to do it for me. I was going to find my passion. When my daughter was born in 2017, a light turned on: baby goods. This is what I wanted to do. This is what I wanted to sell. I wanted to create a community where parents and their children could shop and meet and have story time. I wanted to provide the sense of community I never felt growing up.
