About Us..Who Are We?
About Us...Who Are We?
Some call it luck, we call it divine intervention. In 2004, we became neighbors living only a few doors down from each other and instantly... a friendship was born! Our kids were the same age, our husbands have the same “first” name, and we share the same (great) full time job....being a mom!
In 2006, Tamara moved to beautiful Southern Utah and we longed to have something that would keep our long distance friendship alive. In 2007, Marianne surprised Tamara with an unexpected visit for her birthday along with a homemade gift. It was a unique “emergency kit” made out of a hot pad and some snack baggies! Tamara loved it! In fact, it wasn’t long after that she called Marianne with the vision to make and sell these amazing little organizers to other busy mom’s like us!
This adventure hasn’t always been easy, it has taken a lot longer than we thought, and we have learned many things along the way. But, we are pleased to finally introduce and share our new product with you! Life's Crazy and we find ourselves "In A Pikle" a lot, (we could tell you a few stories!) and this little organizer has helped us Dill With It.
We hope you will try our new product, love it enough to tell your friends about it and share your own "In A Pikle" Moments with us too!
Thank you for visiting our site and sharing in our dream! Good luck to all those with similar dreams. We wish you determination, success, and a good friend to take along for the ride!
I have always had the entrepreneurial spirit and have longed to find something that would allow me to unleash it. I am so excited for this little dream come true! I am a mom of 5 beautiful kids and the wife of an amazing supportive husband, Seth. We have been married for 12 great years. We reside in Salt Lake City, but grew up and met in the Ogden, Utah area. We attended Weber State University and met in the Choir. I love creating things, gardening, music, my family, and vacations!
The "In A Pikle" vision began for me as a part time “creative outlet”...something a little different from my full time Real Estate career of “contracts and legalities.” I have been married for 16 years to a man who supports me toward my goals and cheers for me along the journey. I am the mother of three kiddos who are full of life and much comic relief to boot! We live in Southern Utah and love it! In my “spare time,” (does a “mom/Real Estate Agent/"In A Pikle" entrepreneur” really have spare time?) I enjoy reading, hiking, traveling, and just relaxing with my family.
Meet our team..
I started design development with "In A Pikle" while studying Interior Design at Utah State University, never thinking my knowledge of drafting would go from "buildings" to "bags."
Between school projects and finals I worked with Marianne and Tamara to create fun, fashionable bags that are functional as well as fabulous.
I’ve also had the chance to develop my graphic design skills while creating the company branding and marketing materials. I’ve since graduated and work as an Interior Designer with GSBS Architects in Salt Lake City, Utah where I get the chance every day to do what I love.
When I have a spare moment I spend it laughing with my funny family and friends. I enjoy traveling, sushi and cinnamon bears, but most of all, design of any kind.
