Remote Liner Riveter

YOUR JOB IN FIVE WORDS OR LESS:
I sew the inside

A TYPICAL DAY IN THE (WORK) LIFE:  
There is no typical day! The flexibility that sewing from home allows makes each day different. I can sew before I start homeschool classes with my daughter, or in the afternoon after schooling is done, or into the night when my husband is away working.

COFFEE ORDER:
Either a caramel frappe or an iced caramel macchiato.

ULTIMATE WORK JAM:
I am a big Sirius/XM listener! I am a big fan of the 80s/90s jams but I am generally listening to country music.

FAVORITE R.RIVETER PRODUCT:
The Otto

FAVORITE MARKETPLACE PRODUCT:
The Quinn Sharp Gold Teardrop White Pearl earrings

FIRST JOB:
My first job when I was 16 was as a carhop/drink maker at a local drive-in (Classic 50’s) in my hometown!

GROWING UP YOU WANTED TO BE A:
A meteorologist or a nurse

ADVICE YOU WOULD GIVE YOUR YOUNGER SELF:
To let go of all the baggage in the past. It doesn’t matter anymore and I did make it through.

THE BEST THING ABOUT THE R. RIVETER COMMUNITY:
Everyone I have come in contact with has been so sweet, willing to help in any way, and incredibly helpful! 

WHAT ARE YOU "IN IT" FOR? 
For me sewing has been a way to get peace and a way to connect to my mother, whom I lost when I was 9 years old. When I sew, I can imagine my mother sitting with me and talking about my day. This company has given me a way to connect with her as well as help with our family finances. It’s hard as a military spouse to find work sometimes and this gives me the chance to help our family while still being able to stay home with our daughter.
