“I’ve been blessed with two amazing mentors – Lindsay Bauer, Owner of Board & Brush and Karen Weihert. Both of these ladies have been great role models who have helped me to come out of my shell and taught me the ins and outs of running a business. Most importantly, they have been a continuous support team through whatever life throws at me. This job has brought as many laughs as it has learning experiences and that is all thanks to my mentors.”
