President and Founder of Ceramics on Wheels
I founded The Original Ceramics
on Wheels, Inc., in June of 1998, with
the intent of starting over as a single mom, working from home, and
being able to have a flexible, fun job part time. I was
in my children's school, their aftercare activities and was caring for
my mom, who had advanced Alzheimer's disease.
the first day, I loved being a mobile business bringing crafts to
kids in schools in Broward, Dade and Palm Beach counties. We
an approved vendor for all three school districts, Parks and
Recreation, YMCAs, ASP, ARC, PTAs, SAAC, Girl Scouts, hotels, assisted
living communities, churches, synagogues, special needs and many more.
Our birthday parties are always a favorite for both the
and the kids! I still make the molds and the figurines to be
and we have added a new craft every two years. I have had the
privilege to be hugged and thanked endlessly on this job by people that
come up to my waist and I can't think of a better way to spend one hour
at a time.
My intent now has changed.
My children have grown up, my mom
passed on, and I am working to reach as many children as possible to
have fun with art, to be creative, and to keep their creations as a
past reminder of a day in their childhood! Some children have
never had the opportunity to paint before we visited their school.
Some of the children can't get past the joy of washing their
paintbrush and watching the water change color. No matter
the joy is, I am there sharing it with them. I feel blessed
day I can make a child smile. I like making those amazing
teachers smile too!
