Meet Our Team
I am a longtime resident of the State of Arizona. I attended Moon Valley High School in NW Phoenix, graduated from NAU in Flagstaff and continued with post graduate study at ASU in Tempe. I have been in professional sales for over 25 years, and I am currently a Program Director with Hague Partners and 72SOLD, a phenomenal organization and Industry innovator. Innovators love Innovators!
I have always been an avid flip flop wearer and our weather here in Phoenix allows for almost year round flip flop enjoyment. Joe (my husband) and I enjoy travel and primarily to beach destinations, so flip flops are a wardrobe staple for me. I was forever in search of that elusive pair of flop flops that were durable, comfortable, and cute. A pair that I could wear hours at a time without my feet hurting. So I decided rather than to continue to search, I would create the product I had been long searching for.
As a team and a Family – my daughters, Summer and Tessa, and Joe and myself have come up with something that is really unique, innovative and unmatched in the marketplace at this time. We have sourced the highest grade Brazilian Rubber from our manufacturer partner that offers true quality, comfort, and durability. We have also created our own unique piercing designs and crystal embellishments that are manufactured to our specifications for our PUFF rubber straps and our wonderful consumers like you. Providing the ability for our friends, family, clients and wonderful flip flop lovers like yourself to design their own pair of PUFFS which is reflective of their personality from start to finish is really a dream come true.
Exceptional products and service are the fundamentals and hallmarks for both my professional career and our company. We sincerely hope that you enjoy designing your own Pop Up Flip Flops, pairs that show off your unique personality and design style that will become your wardrobe staple.
I was born and raised in the greater Phoenix area and graduated with my Bachelors degree from Northern Arizona University. The past several years I have worked in Elementary education. Working as a third grade teacher in a Title 1 school, a lower income community, has really shown me the lack of funding of our schools in Arizona. Often times fundraisers are essential in getting the needed technology, supplies for our students, or special entrance fees or trips they would not otherwise be able to afford. Co-founding Pop Up Flip Flop has allowed me to introduce a fun and unique fundraising opportunity to schools, churches, and organizations. I knew offering a unique product that is essential to every Arizonan wardrobe would be destined to become a quick and easy fundraiser for any organization. Pop Up Flip Flop has allowed me to embark on a double journey of entrepreneurship and educating our Arizona’s youth.
I am a born and raised Phoenician and along with my Mother and Sister also received my Bachelors Degree from NAU. Growing up in the Valley of the Sun I was always in flip flops, but they were almost always to some degree uncomfortable to wear. They would either be too flat to wear or would hurt my toes, so for many years I would spend more money on higher grade brand flips flops like Rainbows until I stopped wearing them all together. When I was approached to join this flip flop business I became instantly excited because for the first time I found flip flops that I could not only decorate to fit my personality but that were actually comfortable to wear. And I am excited to share such a great product with the rest of the world.
