Born and raised in Charleston, SC, I stayed in the south and went to college at Tulane University. I graduated and worked a lot of retail in New Orleans while starting a small wholesale business.

After nearly a decade in New Orleans, fate took me back to Charleston where I re-met my now husband of 16 years. We’ve spent 15 of those years living in an historic shrimping village north of Charleston with horses, dogs and cats. Our tiny town had the best gift shop in it….

Life changed and we decided we wanted to, also. Good fortune brought us to the Hudson Valley. I couldn’t be happier to be here and try the ownership side of retail.

I hope Demitasse and her goods inspire creativity, encourage self-care and, occasionally, offer you a little indulgence and frivolity. See you at Demitasse.
