Life & Career Milestones

My path in life has been direct

  • 1.

    As she was growing up, her road was always leading to becoming a clothing designer.

  • 2.

    Over time she became more political, and started to see the fashion business as shallow.

  • 3.

    She adopted a daughter that had certain "delays" in her learning and development.

  • 4.

    When her daughter was six, she was diagnosed with autism.

  • 5.

    Says one of the greatest griefs of having a child with autism is the fact that people are constantly judging your parenting skills.

  • 6.

    Once she started working with speech and language therapists, she realized that learning tools for autistic children were not easily attainable.

  • 7.

    Decided to take business and computer classes so that she could start her own business to fill that void.

  • 8.

    Says one of the greatest things about her business is that it built a community for parents of autistic children, who often find it hard to talk about their struggles.
