The See Jane Sparkle brand as you see it is now a portfolio of Brands offering wine, jewelry and skincare. The wine came by accident when I discovered the wine I was enjoying wasn’t good for me. I am a recovering sugar addict and I was getting headaches and stomachaches almost every time I enjoyed a glass. I was introduced to Scout & Cellar clean crafted wine over 3 years ago and it was a no brainer to join and partner with this women owned company. There were only about 3000 consultants at the time, but this start up was like no other. The mission of family, community, transparency, and doing the right thing was broadcasted loud and clear and I felt like I had found my people. I also don’t feel like crap anymore and it is the only the only wine I drink now. I even travel with my wine and pay the corkage fee at my favorite restaurants. Do you drink wine? Maybe you want to be part of my Sparkle Wine Family and market wine as a side gig or full time job (In 2022 I left my day time job to be all in).

Paloma is a Market Manager for Fizz, specializing in Word of Mouth Marketing. She is representing Quidel, a medical diagnostics company with an at-home Covid test called Quick-Vue that you get results in 10 minutes and buy over the counter.

She looks for events and places where she can pull up with her attention-getting car and provide resources and education to the community about the importance of testing and staying healthy.

When she is not driving around in her Covid Cruiser, she is beating up people inside a wrestling ring! Paloma is also known as "The Sriracha Muchacha Paloma Starr" she has been a professional wrestler for the past 14 years and loves to perform in front of a crowd.

She will be raffling off a gas card and a QuickVue test.

Sara Stone: CEO & Co-Founder of Activate Your Impact
Activate Your Impact’s purpose is to provide safe beauty products in skincare, makeup, and fragrance customized to you based on your goals and lifestyle. I co-founded Activate Your Impact to make an impact in the beauty industry. Spending 16 years working for a Fortune 500 cosmetic company, I started to become aware of the ingredients in many of our trusted brands. I decided it was time to leave my corporate career and pursue my passion of spreading the word on safe cosmetic products. It is my passion to raise awareness and help others find effective products that are safe and trusted. Activate Your Impact launched in September 2021 and is expanding to more than just a skincare brand. It is a clean beauty movement.
