Charlene Mayo – Charlene is a master juggler and project marketing consultant. She's always on the lookout for interesting objects and "the just right" gift. This company keeps her business-brain active.  Charlene spends time as a corporate event planner, marketing consultant and she serves on the Board of Directors for Friends of Spanish Immersion of SMMUSD and Surrounded by Love.

Virginia Ostrin – Virginia is admittedly void of any creative or artistic ability which is what she attributes to her appreciation for the arts. She frequents museums and galleries, is a voracious reader and listens to all musical genres. Having lived in Southern California all her life is reflected in her laid back and easy going personality.

Robin Wisdom – Robin is a doer who oozes creativity and charisma. She's been studying essential oils for over 13 years and uses them daily to recharge herself, her family and her clients. Robin is a world traveler, gourmet cook, tarot reader, green gardener. She designs jewelry, makes her own clothes and lives in Venice with her husband, two daughters, and two fluffy chow chows.  

Lisa Schmidt – Lisa is an interior designer by trade with a passion to design and create beauty in your home. Her desire to create the perfect scent for her own home in Venice started the ball rolling in the creation of the Curations collection. When not busy shopping for clients, sketching new product ideas you will find her baking for her family and watching her youngest son play baseball.
