OUR TEAM
Kelly Barker

Founder

Kelly obtained her Bachelor of Science in Biology from Stephen F. Austin State University. Rather than pursue medicine, she went on to complete her master’s degree at the University of Texas at Arlington. She spent the next 15 years working in the corporate world, spending the latter half of her career with JPMorgan Chase. She took a leap of faith in 2013 and left her corporate career to become an entrepreneur. Kelly’s adventure as an entrepreneur has been painful yet full of joy, as she claims life is all about learning and growing in a positive environment. She is the mom to two children who have seen first-hand the ups and downs of starting a business from scratch.
