Describe your business. Did you find it, or did it find you?
Honey Bear offers something for everyone at an affordable price. We buy clothing and accessories outright by appointment, and consign handmade art and jewelry. It’s a fun place to shop and there are many unique treasures to be found—we have a bit of everything! This was my dream and it manifested here in Downtown Placerville.
What was the first job you ever had, and what did you learn from the experience?
I was a nanny for a Green Bay Packer’s family. I learned children are very entertaining and have been a Packer’s fan ever since!
How are you involved with both the community and your customer?
We have a “Because” raffle where we match the winner’s receipt to their favorite local school’s music or sports program, as well as give them a discount on their next purchase.
What life accomplishments are you most proud of?
I’m the proud mother of twin teenage boys who excel at everything they do—they’re destined for greatness!
Who is your role model in business or in life, and why?
I admire my mother’s business sense. She taught me to be a strong woman and to see the good in everything.
What’s your favorite place to eat out locally?
I love having lunch at Two Cooks on Main and dinner at Heyday Café.
Where do you and your family go locally to have fun?
We enjoy hiking in the Eldorado National Forest.
If you could meet someone living or dead, who would it be and why?
John F. Kennedy—I’ve always admired the man he was and his love for our country; also, Marilyn Monroe.
And finally, customer service is…?
In life and with my business, I always treat people how I’d like to be treated. I want everyone to leave my shop smiling.
