Q&A with Liz!
Why did you want to own your own business?
Owning a boutique had always been a pipe dream, but with the ladies of Monkee’s corporate helping me get started, opening my own business didn’t seem like such an impossibility. The opportunity to open up a Monkee’s also came along at a time when I was working 40 hours a week at a desk in corporate America. I was burnt out, wasn’t married, had no children, and thought “why not?”.
What is your favorite part of being a Monkee's owner?
It is very exciting to watch as the Monkee’s brand grows and becomes more recognizable around the country. I love being a part of such a strong group of women that are so passionate about what they do and about helping each other succeed.
What organizations do you enjoy supporting in your community?
I am passionate about the Madeira Chamber of Commerce. I love being a part of transforming an old, traditional community into a place that attracts young families. We also support Dress for Success Cincinnati.
