Beads by the Bay
Got a degree in Cultural Anthropology from UCSC, followed by a stint managing a TOGOS sandwich shop. Catapulted back into school to get an Early Childhood Education credential. 10 years teaching, from infants, toddlers and preschoolers to college students. Moved from Santa Cruz to Morro Bay in 1988, had two kids, ran a home based integrated pest management mail order business, picked up a few substitute teaching jobs, and ultimately went to work as an archaeologist with CA Singer and Associates, and as a housepainter with Native American Painting. Also helped a CPA with data entry during the height of tax season. Quite the eclectic mix! But as my old fencing coach used to say, any port in a storm...The storm for me was 2006, when my construction based jobs were starting to take a dive with the economy. In September of 2006, I bought a bead store! Third best thing I ever did, next to child one and child two. Owning a business is an incredible way to be a part of a community. I joined the Chamber, Merchants Association, served on the MB Promotions Committee, General Plan Advisory Committee, Planning Commission and various local boards. Learn by doing, and understand from the inside out!
