She operated and grew the business for almost 6 years before selling it in 2013.
She moved to the Peach State in 2014 when her husband took a position as a professor at Kennesaw State University. She decided to start homeschooling her then 3 children and had a fourth child before starting up a new business called SendOutCards.
