I am different and self-taught artist and designer. I have no college background but my work past is unique which shaped me to create Paradise Beach Apothecary.
I believe in Dreaming Big and Dare to Fail and When there is a Will there is a Way and finding that way whatever it is to the finishing line.
I believe in having hope, working really endlessly hard for what you want and never , never give up!
Therefore, I believe I have been fated to create and design unique, beach therapeutic products that are fun,eyecatching and something special.....I have a story!
This shop and products were created and designed by my combined experience of being a designer / artist of since the young age of 7 and my pure love of the beaches,seaside and the islands!
I started my island travel agent wedding planning career of 17 years out in the travel department at World Championship Wrestling packaging airline tickets for the now known Staci Keibler and Rick Flair among others.
Life is stressful ,exhausting and overwhelming.I realized working with travel clients in my 17 years hearing the joy of their happy beach vacation stories were some of their happiest moments in their lives.
I also worked in the medical industry for Neil Armstrong's Doctor (the actual first man on the moon) and the dental industry.
I saw over the years many patients suffer from anxiety,depression,sadness and some tragically passed away. I discovered with my own self that when I got sad or went thru hard times or when I experienced my own depression years later on in life that whenever I wore and smelled island beach scents and looked at beach pictures it made me think of happy beach memories and I started to immediately feel better.I combined these memories and philosophies all together and started creating this unique beach therapeutic relaxing spa products line.
This unique boutique and products were created to bring Happiness,calming relaxation and smiles to each customer when they wear the tropical scented products and think of the beach.It is instant therapeutic relaxation.
Years later, I hand created over 3,000 unique products by myself and designed three different online boutiques and a brand called Paradise Beach consisting of handmade fashion, jewelry, candles and apothecary, two shops of which the past two years were contacted by Shark Tank casting and Retail internet giant Zulily. I have also in 2020 created the new Paradise Beach Books which are inspiring seaside beach themed children's books.

PARADISE BEACH APOTHECARY
About the Owner-My Journey to Paradise
I am a true girly girl. I love fashion magazines, going to the beach,travelling,shopping, going to parties, designer clothes, girls night outs,new fashion trends and anything frilly, fun beach-related and pink-colored.
I am obsessed with bright colors that stand out,bold geometric pattern designs ,vintage styles and classic versatile simplicity. My designs are inspired by the unique life and places I have lived so far and the beautiful beach tropical places I have been fortunate and lucky enough to travel to due mostly to my life as a travel agency owner.
How it All Came About:
My obsession with boutiques started with shopping with my mom as a little girl. My appreciation visiting the cheerful small mom and pop boutiques was so much fun! I remember I was 7 or 8 and I used to make magnets and sell them to my aunts when they would visit us in my mini pretend boutique shop I made in my basement.I guess you could say then I was destined to do this for a living!
After always having the want and desire to create beach resort fashion and womens accessories for years at the age of 26, my husband inspired me and said "You can do anything you want in life, the only thing stopping you is yourself from trying". It was one of the best quotes I have ever heard. It made me feel alive again. He bought me my first sewing machine and here I am today present , ten years later, I have created my dream come true beach fashion boutique with over 500 items called Paradise Beach Boutique and later on created Paradise Beach Apothecary. .
The road to actually open the boutique was my mom. She generiously gave me $300 which was a fortune to me and believed in me in 2012 which I used to buy a business license and some fabric.At the time I quit my safe dull full time job and I only had $500 in my account to my name.
I worked hard ,endlessly hard and created scarf and jewelry products one by one in flash sales online and flipped and invested everything I made until I created the entire fashion and accessories line which took me 3 years later.
Without her belief in my creativity I would not be where I am today with the business. I was blessed . My parents always believed in me and when i was a kid at age 16 ,my dad after working really hard all day at work built me an art room with his own two hands.I think it was that moment that I knew I was going to pursue my dream and show him I could be successful like him.
As of Oct 2013, I have a baby boy that inspires me to work harder even more everyday! Just seeing his smile inspires the ambition to overdrive!
This shop is dedicated to my precious son Zaiden, wonderful mom and dad who always supported me and helped keep me inspired over the years to fight to achieve my dream even when things in life seemed impossible! They all taught me, you cannot fail unless you give up!
Because of them, I followed my life-long dream and never, never gave up!
