I am a native SoCal girl, born and raised in Malibu, now living 20 minutes away in Oak Park. I married my high school sweetheart and together we have two beautiful children, Landon & Lily. 


I met the founder, Christine, about 9 years ago in Stroller Strides shortly after my son was born. Ironically, I had been wanting a personalized necklace with my son’s name on it. As our babies played on the playground, Christine and I became friends—laughing (and sometimes crying) over the trials of motherhood. I learned about Q Handmade and fell in love with the line, so I invested in my very own hand-stamped necklace. 


Nine years later, I still wear my necklace (along with many other Q Handmade pieces) and Christine and I are still dear friends. I have always admired her story and the business she has built. The quality of the jewelry and care behind making each piece is so unique. I see how the brand has reached thousands of people and touched their hearts the same way it did mine. Every time I look at my necklace with my childrens’ names adorning it, I am reminded of how grateful I am to have these two tiny humans who call me mommy. I am humbled that Christine has chosen me to pass the torch to and I am honored to carry on the legacy of the brand. I know that Q Handmade will remain a special place that will continue to touch people’s hearts around the world. 


I look forward to creating many more memories for you.
