Can you tell us about yourself, and what brought you to using the Arise® Platform?

I am currently in Ohio. My husband is in active duty with the U.S. Air Force. We have been here since 2018, but I’m born and raised in Carolina. We have two teenage girls, 14 and 16, and two bratty dogs who think they’re humans. [Laughs] It definitely has its days!

What made you choose the Arise® Platform?

We were moving from Texas to Georgia, and I was having to give up my job. I wanted to work, but as most mothers, I wanted it to be based around my kids, and when I was in Georgia, this other woman—her daughter and mine were in the same class—asked if I was interested in working from home. I was honest and said that I didn’t want to sell anything [laughs].

This was around 2017, or beginning of 2018, so I gave it a try. And then I absolutely loved it and how I was able to schedule work around my kids, picking them up from the bus, taking them to school, or doctor’s appointments. And with my husband being in the military (and not being able to depend on him for events or appointments all the time), the ability to be a mom and make an income is what drew me in and kept me here.

Is there any advice you have for anyone new to using the Arise® Platform?

Self-motivation is key. If you want something, you go get it. You have to have that drive to be self-motivated and the capacity to do it.

Favorite food:

Japanese food, probably the hibachi Japanese food! I think it’s the teriyaki sauce!

Favorite movie:

Dirty Dancing!

Favorite pastime:

Oh, I love to shop [laughs]! But I love to sit by the beach too. I could take either one: 80 degrees and the waves flowing, or shopping.
