More About Our Company

Hi! I am Maria

Mother of five children, and grandmother to six. Robert and I have been married for 30 years. I was born and raised in Sweden, by Armenian parents. Therefore I grew up with two languages and two totally different cultures. At a very young age I was introduced to English as my third language. My experiences have taken me to multiple continents, where I have not just traveled to, but also lived.

Maria

This is me, thriving at a local farmers market.
