"I wanted to create something that felt like a hidden gem."
Creating small businesses has always been a passion of mine ever since I was six years old and started my first venture selling handmade jewelry and cards to my sweet grandmas and classmates. As an adult, I was working as a freelance stylist by day and teaching yoga classes by night. I wanted to find a way to combine these two seemingly very different passions into one, cohesive brand that felt like a destination for people. I wanted to create something that felt like a hidden gem, that once stumbled upon, sparks your imagination and inspires. Out of these desires, birthed The Local Gem, a yoga studio and boutique with an artsy and eclectic vibe.�
