Q: Describe yourself in 6 words or less.
A: Do I have to grow up?

Q: What is your favorite thing about working at Constellation & Co.?
A: I love meeting people, interacting with people, encouraging people. I am a people person who loves to share life and have everyday heart-to-hearts with anyone willing to connect. Constellation & Co. is all about community and I'm 110% invested in that. 

*Warning: If you come into the shop and start me talking, I may not stop for awhile. Atticus, the finch, is your only buffer and way out. 

Anywho, come in and say hi! :) 

Q: What are you doing when you're not in the shop? (Other jobs, hobbies, etc.)
A: When I am not in the shop, I'm probably doing something with my church community. I LOVE my church family and am in a season where I get to pour heavily into it and get a lot in return. I'm not from here originally, so, to FINALLY have a group of people surrounding me, supporting me, praying for me... investing in my life after what felt like such a period of readjustment and isolation is just amazing. 

Something fun to know about me is that I'm an illustrator and writer by profession, so there's drawing, designing, book writing, etc. going on. Sometimes, though, I'm simply binge watching a foreign TV show so I can learn about another time period or culture. And of course, spending time with my fantastic husband. He's the best.

Q: What is your favorite place in Seattle? (Shops, restaurants, parks, etc.)
A: It's a toss up between Uwajimaya (The Kinokuniya Bookstore, you guys!!! Ah!) and Pike Place Market. I really enjoy being in market place environments where there are lots of colors, sounds, smells, and things to discover. I like finding cutesy stationery items, eating all the delicious snacks, and searching for the world's best teas (I do have a collection!). Also, how beautiful are the flowers are at Pike Place Market?
