About Us

 

Below is just a little bit about me so you can get to know me. I love working with my customers and getting to know them, and I thought you might want to get a little better acquainted with me.

About me: I grew up right here in Orange City and attended MOC-FV (the local high school). I had intended on going to NCC (Northwest Iowa Community College) to get a business degree, but decided instead to attend YWAM (Youth With A Missions) in Honolulu. I went through discipleship training school for 3 months. In order to graduate from YWAM, I had to go on an outreach to incorporate what I had learned in another country. I went to India for a little over two months. This is how I got connected to my now-husband, Jess. We had gone to high school together, but he did not reach out to me until I was in Hawaii since he was also interested in YWAM. He later got into the program and went on an outreach to India. We dated and were soon married on December 2, 2011. We lived in Arnolds Park, Iowa where we worked odd jobs until we moved back to Orange City in 2012 where I started working for Next Door Boutique and Jesse started working for my dad at Alton Well. After three years of working at the boutique, I bought and took over the business in June of 2016 and have loved it ever since. Jess and I currently live on an acreage just outside of Maurice, and I love the farm life.

Hobbies: I love decorating, especially at the start of a new season. My pets mean the world to me; I’ve loved spending time with my three dogs and the farm kitties. Jess and I like to go on walks, go out to eat for Mexican and Chinese, and have movie dates at home. Since moving to the farm, we have a lot more room to host people, which is something that I really enjoy.

I hope you’ve learned a few things about me, and I would love to get to know you! Stop in the store sometime, check us out, and talk to me in person.
