Early in my career I was exploring an unexpected opportunity as a chocolate buyer at a luxurious department store in Tulsa, Miss Jackson’s. My mentor was one of the few female CEOs in Tulsa at the time and changed my life in more ways than I ever could have known at the time. I left the store to work in the family business for the next decade. In working with my family I learned the importance of leading by example, creating a healthy work environment, maintaining high standards of service, how to scrutinize finances and how to make the right decision even when it’s difficult. Then in the fall of 2018 a serendipitous moment arrived. My partners and I were presented with the opportunity to purchase Glacier Confection from the founder, whom I had a relationship with all those years earlier at Miss Jackson’s. My old mentor’s words and a forgotten level of confidence came flooding back to me and I knew I had found the path I was supposed to take.
