I find things like this really hard to write- I do think it's important to offer potential clients and customers a little insight into who I am though and why I started Smitten, so.....
I grew up in Maple Heights, Ohio in a house of women (my mom, my sister, myself, Fluffy, our one-eyed Siamese cat and Molly, our dog). I went to John Carroll University where I graduated with an accounting degree and more importantly met my husband, Gregor. After graduating, I worked as an Auditor for Ernst & Young. After a few years I escaped that and headed to Costa Rica & Mexico to learn Spanish and forget the horrors of auditing.
When I returned, I convinced one of my best friends to move to Chicago with me and took a job in accounting. I quit that in 2004 when I got engaged and moved to Miami to plan my own wedding. I had helped numerous friends and acquaintances with the details of their big day - but planning my own really solidified my love for the subject and propelled me to start Smitten Boutique.
I have learned so much running my boutique over the last 5 years. My most enjoyable moments have always come from interaction with newly engaged couples, new moms and new homeowners! Helping people make the special occasions in thier lives extraordinary is truly a rewarding and "awe" inspiring calling for me!
