Tara Bohm - Senior Stylist
Marcy Abate - Star Stylist
Hometown: I'm from Syracuse, NY, but I live in Arlington, VA
Start Date: Feb 2011
Stats: 27, Personal Trainer, Fitness Coach, but due to some life transitions this past 6 months, Stella & Dot has been my full-time job. I never thought I would find myself in the position I was in 6 months ago when my husband told me he wanted a divorce and I had already quit my full-time job to be stationed in California with him. I never would have survived without this business - in the depths when I thought I lost everything, I remember telling my friends and family "well, I have Stella & Dot..." That was so empowering. Last month's paycheck hitting STAR was like a "real job" paycheck!!!
3 month goal: I worked so hard to hit Star and really feel like my sponsor (Julie) and my team deserve equal recognition. My goal is to keep sponsoring consistently and coaching so that others can achieve their goals and we can enjoy this amazing adventure together.

I love hanging out with my hubby of almost 9 years, Andy. I'm really a homebody and I love to be at home. I love to decorate our home and paint furniture. Oh, and I love coffee and wine and dessert......
Fave part of S&D business: I love spending time with other women and making them feel beautiful. And earning an income doing it??? Awesome. I love all of my new friends and business partners. Spending time kid-free with all of these amazing women is the best! The free jewelry isn't bad either ;)
