MY STORY

Cultivating Creativity in Charlotte

An entrepreneur at heart, I cannot help but come up with strategies to create an impact in the world around me. Curiosity is at the core of my being, and faith is the anchor my soul clings to as our family experiences the ups and downs of life.

 

Having lived in California, Indiana, and now Charlotte, North Carolina, I have adventured across the country a few times, learning from each culture as I go. 

 

My amazing husband and children have my heart. Our best moments are at our kitchen table full of family, friends, and neighbors. The Thomas Family is a hub of laughter, authenticity, and love, oh and food — we really like to share food.
