I am an independent consultant with Tomboy Tools. I share the line of Tomboy Tools through parties, events fundraising and online. Because the business model is direct sales, I recently embraced the idea that I have become a traveling sales person! My business is still new to me and I am excited to be entering a larger community of seasoned handy women and also to be adding to that community by empowering beginners owning their own tools and gaining confidence in using them. I have a lot of ideas that are evolving on paper and hope to implement.
I am a handy creative sort and a woodworker. I build furniture as a hobby. I am sadly without my own woodshop but working on changing that. I love to walk with friends. I love to exercise, but never get quite enough. I currently am working through the Man Booker prize winners with a groovy book club. I like to laugh, eat out and hang with my family.
I have taken off 15 years from paid work and during that time I have to say that I am proud of raising two wonderful young men (still raising them) with the help of my husband. I am proud of 12+ years of steady volunteer work around community and my boys' schools. I am proud of my woodworking skills
My business is young and growing. While Tomboy Tools, Inc. is a national company it's consultants are considered independent and owners of their own businesses. I am proud of the fact that I have been able to successfully start and continue to evolve the vision I have to make my business a unique asset to the Tomboy Tools family of consultants. I began my business over a year ago as the only Bay Area consultant and have had to learn the ins and outs remotely without the local support of an experienced consultant. I am proud to say that there are now four of us. I am proud of my progress and look forward to continuing on this trajectory.
Hello, I launched my business with Tomboy Tools a year ago May. Just as I was gaining speed, I hit a road bump. I am now reconnecting with a passion for sharing Tomboy Tools with women. I look forward to connecting with other women business owners.
