Hi! We are Jaime Hackett and Mallory Meyer, and we first met in university. Since graduation, we have continued to grow our friendship through common hobbies such as running, playing tennis, cooking, and travelling the world. After working for many years in various industries, we both knew we had to make a change and bring our skill sets together to create a business that we could really call our own!
