Before moving to Puerto Rico & starting Summer Love Jewelry, I was a teacher in Austin, TX for 6 years. It was meaningful work for me as I saw it as a way to give back to society and the greater good. Running a creative business has changed what my day-to-day looks like, & with that I’ve had to shift the ways in which I give back to my community. With campaigns & sales of my jewelry, I have been able to support a wide variety of causes & organizations, from hurricane relief to animal rescue and much, much more.
