It Has Been A Rough Year

I was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, living there until 2000 when I met my husband, Hans, and moved to Huntsville, Alabama. I attended Georgia Tech, majoring first in architecture and then in history. I worked for Volvo Cars of North America for eight years, the last four as a Product Specialist training sales consultants on the features and benefits of Volvo cars. I left Volvo in 2004 when our twin girls, Cora and Greta, were born and I have been a stay-at-home mom ever since. I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis the same day the patent for the Baby Dipper bowl was filed, August 17, 2005. So far I have not been affected very much by the disease, but since there is no telling when there will be a sudden downturn, I keep going full steam all the time. And recently added to the excitement of my life is a second set of twins, this time two boys, Carlton and Franklin!!!

I never dreamed that I would have two sets of twins, much less that I would come up with a product that could help parents everywhere feed their babies and help toddlers learn to self-feed. And all of this in addition to the fact that my husband is also a co-founder of a start-up company, The Q-Track Corporation, which is working on an indoor wireless location system. (It's like indoor GPS.)  Things have certainly not been easy the past few years, but our family believes that each of these companies has a place in the business world to help people with different needs.

Thanks for visiting We look forward to hearing what everyone thinks of the Baby Dipper bowl. Please share your thoughts with us after you've had a chance to use the Baby Dipper bowl at home.
