October and November
Let's Celebrate October Promotions!
Eileen Statts - Senior Stylist
I live in Midlothian, VA with my husband and two awesome kids, Riley and Charlotte. We are lovers of the outdoors, traveling and entertaining friends in our home. I was a Professional School Counselor and Educator for over 15 years, but after I had my second child, it hit me: I had to find something more flexible - something that would allow me to do the things I wanted to do for and with my family. I was scared to leave a career that I had spent so much time developing and going to school for, but I knew I needed a change for my family's sake. I had friends with their own businesses, but never considered myself "the type". Then I started wondering, "What if I am that type?" I started researching Stella & Dot and it seemed like a perfect match. I loved the idea that I could work 5, 10, 20, 30 hours a week, depending on what worked for me! Without a doubt, the flexibility of the business is my favorite part. I am now a happy stay at home mom, and S&D is the perfect compliment to this arrangement.
Anna Blessing - Associate Stylist
I work as an exercise physiologist in cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation at Fairfax and Loudoun Hospitals.
I also, give softball pitching and hitting lessons to girls from 8 years old to 18 years old.
I joined Stella & Dot in college for extra cash because it was flexible and on my own time- I needed the cash
and couldn't hold a part time job with school and as an athlete on GMU's softball team. Stella & Dot was PERFECT
and also allowed me to have a gorgeous collection of jewels.

A little bit about your life: I am a wife & a mom (of a little man who is about to celebrate his 1st birthday this month) I work full time at John Deere in Iowa. I love spending time with my family, being outdoors, and of course running my S&D business! I am SO excited to continue learning from the best and grow my team & business.
Why you decided to do Stella and Dot: After getting a couple pieces, I was hooked on Stella & Dot jewelry. Since I work a corporate job in a manufacturing environment I really wanted to be able to have a way to still feel “girly.” I loved the idea of getting to connect with other women in the area and sharing our beautiful line. I was also excited to be a part of a group of strong willed women who love to support and motivate each other!
Stefanie Copp - Associate Stylist

As a breast cancer survivor, I volunteer as an ambassador for the Tigerlily Foundation, dedicated to empowering, educating, and advocating for women under 40 before, during, and after their breast cancer diagnosis. After my battle with cancer, I realized I didn’t want to wait to experiencethings in life, especially with my 8 year-old daughter, Sophie. She is my why…always will be.Stella & Dot gives me the opportunity to provide for Sophie and take her on these adventures. Asa Stylist, I continue to meet amazing women and am proud to be a part of a company with a greatphilosophy, product, and commitment to giving back.
Jamie McAllister - Associate Stylist
My name is Jamie McAllister
Associate Stylist with Stella and Dot (for October).
I am a new mom of a beautiful 5 month old daughter Gracie Jo. I also work as an accountant for a fuel company. I have loved jewelry and fashion all of my life. I discovered Stella and Dot last year through a family member and fellow stylist (Amanda Pollice), and I fell in love with it instantly. I love the quality of it. It was hard for me to find affordable jewelry with a great quality. I wanted pieces that lasted, and they do. I never leave the house without jewelry. Even before Stella, I also had a major arm party going on with earrings, rings, necklaces as well...even if it was with a plain tee.
