Tell us how you chose this career.

I pursued my academic journey in drama at the University of Houston, where I honed my skills and cultivated a deep appreciation for the performing arts. However, my upbringing was rooted in the window covering business. While I initially set out on a path toward an acting career, fate intervened when I made the decision to venture into the world of entrepreneurship. 

By a twist of destiny, I opened my own window covering business, intending it to be a means to support my artistic pursuits. Yet what began as an incidental foray quickly transformed into a remarkable success story. Recognizing the tremendous potential within the industry and fueled by my entrepreneurial spirit, I made a pivotal choice to redirect my focus entirely toward developing and managing my flourishing business. 

I attend national and international shows, where I seek out premier vendors, and I scour the market for the finest window covering products. I continually endeavor to offer my esteemed customers nothing short of excellence.

Describe a recent happening that restored your faith in humanity. 

One recent happening occurred when my family and I moved to Rancho Palos Verdes from West Los Angeles. Our neighbors’  kindness and warmth were nothing short of exceptional. That reaffirmed my belief that Southern California is a great place to raise a family and enjoy the simple pleasures of life, such as a backyard barbeque with friends or watching a breathtaking sunset. The genuine care and support from our new neighbors not only made us feel welcomed but also reminded us of the inherent goodness that exists in people. It’s moments like these that make me grateful for the community we now call home.
