After a long career in the Pharmaceutical Industry, I always wanted a business of my own that allowed me to maintain my lifestyle and be my own boss. I have always been a busy working mom, but loved the flexibility of my previous job as a Pharmaceutical Sales Representative with Glaxo Smith Kline. In 2008, I was introduced to Stella & Dot by my sister. Having had a past career in fashion, but wanting more flexibility, I was intrigued by what Stella & Dot had to offer. I joined Stella & Dot as a stylist, and within a few months really fell in love with the Stella & Dot business model and philosophy. Initially, my goal was to be a part-time Stylist and earn about $1,000 a month. It didn't take long for me to far exceed those goals. I now earn an average of $15,000 a month and have made Stella & Dot my full-time career. I believe working hard at something you love will result in personal success 99% of the time! I encourage my team of stylists to focus their sight not only on monetary success but also on a high quality of life. A happy life is a balanced one. I have earned both with Stella & Dot. My team, the Gemstone Rubies, has grown to over 1000 stylists In the US and in Europe with over $1.5 million sold annually. I feel lucky to have found this opportunity of a lifetime.
