In a nutshell, it was Detroit’s vibrant music scene and creative tone that kept me from leaving the state for college. I grew up in the metro area and have been frequenting Detroit since I was a kid. After college though, I chose to stay in Detroit because it offers an edge few major cities can compete with - the ability to start and grow an innovative business in an environment where people care about the prosperity and well being of your business.
I actually fell into my job out of necessity to help support my family when unemployment hit our household pretty hard in 2008. I spent my last year of college creating a business plan for a hobby my Mom started and upon graduation in 2009, I put it into action. Aunt Nee’s currently services Bed Bath and Beyond, Walrgeen’s, and 30 other independent retailers throughout metro-Detroit. My activities include day-to-day operations, business and new product development, overseeing production, account maintenance and expansion, along with product marketing and merchandising. I can't describe how fortunate I feel to be in this position. I enjoy every aspect of what I do and am very thankful for the opportunities that come my way as I shoot to make our business grow.
