What goods or services do you provide? Absolutely the best personal care products out there and excellent local service. These are all-natural, pure, safe, and botanically based products. We have everything from acclaimed anti-aging skin care and supplements, to protein weight loss shakes and things for baby care. You can find everything at

What’s new or exciting at your place? The company is always producing new and fascinating products or experiences for everybody involved. My job is really fun, and I don’t know anybody else who thinks that about their job. There have been many well-compensated professionals who have dropped their careers as lawyers or doctors and replaced or exceeded income with Arbonne. This is not a little trend; this is the future.

What strategy do you use to differentiate your business from your competition? The products really speak for themselves – everybody who tries them loves them. All our products are gluten-free and vegan. We source from organic plants when at all possible and don’t ever use cheap fillers, animal byproducts, or test on animals. All support and products are domestic. We offer reasonable pricing, or even better, a compensation plan when you make one of the smartest decisions of your life to join us.

What philosophy do you follow in dealing with your customers? What can your customers expect from you? Being diligent, honest, and someone who cares for others is the person I’ve been my whole life. Clients and teammates can always expect me to be happy and willing to help them make positive changes for their skin, bodies, and most importantly,their lives.

Tell us a little about your background, education and experience: I was fortunate to grow up with my mother always pushing health foods – green with every meal, fruits, no sugars, no additives, vitamins, the whole nine yards. She never stopped researching or trying to help us find the healthiest things. I started school to become a nurse, but realized it took a very special kind of person. Working for Arbonne the past three months I have learned more about what is important to me and how to manifest it than I have in any other profession, and I feel eternally blessed that I was given the gift of this beautiful opportunity.

What is the most humorous thing that has happened at your business since you opened? It seems that no matter where I go, and no matter who I meet, we always end up laughing! Humor is such an important part of my life, and so necessary, if you ask me. Laughing is the best medicine, and Arbonne is just the best there is!
