I’m the owner and operator of eLeMeNO-P Kids. What began as my journey of using my love for painting to create hand painted nursery wall letters has turned into a journey of creating educational toys for children. I firmly believe that it is through play that children learn the most. I’m inspired to create products that keep children learning by using their imaginations through open-ended play. My love for education and love for children combined to create this beautiful mesh of wanting to help parents see that it’s important that their child have natural toys in their environment that foster a love and development for learning.I am so blessed that this journey has taken off like it has, and I only have God to thank for that. My passions and love for educating children took a different direction than I expected, but I wouldn’t take it back for the world. God works in mysterious ways, and I’m blessed that He has helped me find this new passion for business in me that I never knew was there.
About me and my family:
I grew up in a small city 20 minutes outside of New Orleans, Louisiana. From the ages of 13-21, I was a summer camp counselor at our church. 95% of my jobs after that included working with children. I moved away for college to Lafayette, Louisiana. It was there that I met my husband in a coffee shop. I moved to Austin, Texas with him and we got married and had our son, Mason (6). We now live in Ohio, and I have the greatest pleasure of working from home and spending time with Mason during the day.
