Early on during the pandemic, my husband Brian and I were challenging one another what businesses would be thriving during this time, as the franchise we had invested in 18 months prior, Row House and StretchLab were both closed because of COVID 19 and I was now working from home. We were being creative, bouncing ideas off one another, as we saw the world around us changing so quickly.

I even managed to secure the opportunity of being a lead engineer at the local space Jams studio here in town. Read more>>
