November Mommy of the Month
Meet Jasmine Snow! Creator of one of our favorite products and momma of two!
Jasmine's decision to produce her product locally:
This is my first time every producing any kind of product so I felt really strongly about keeping everything right in my back yard. I wanted to be able to look at samples right away, or walk over to the factory to check something out if there was a problem. It gave me a bigger sense of control over the entire process and made me feel like I was in the loop the entire time. I also love the factory that I produce out of. Every time I walk in they know me, give me a hug, ask about the kids, and that gave me such comfort as well. This was my baby and I wanted to make sure I could coddle it every step of the way!
Jasmine on being a Mom & a women in business:
There’s a lot of ups and downs to being a working mom but also a mom in business. I work for myself and I’m just at the very beginning of what I feel is my big career, so hustling and leaving the kids for that is tough with a lot of guilt. But it’s so rewarding to be able to tell Isla that I love what I do, and even better to show both of my kids how to be independent and make their own money and stand on their own two feet. Independence is so important to me.
Jasmine on coming back to OC:
I love coming back down to Ocean City because as an adult and as a New Yorker I can appreciate it for all the things that I took for granted growing up. The quiet streets (in the winter!), Driving a car, and the fact that it really is a place where everyone knows your name. It’s home!
Jasmine's favorite part about raising her kids in New York City:
Everything! I love the idea of raising my kids in New York and giving them so much access to culture, opportunity and all different walks of life. I came here a girl from a small town who mostly only ate chicken fingers (lol!), and I love that my kids have the chance to absorb so much more simply by living in this city. I feel so lucky that I get to raise them here but have the best of both worlds and can bring them home with me to the shore in the summers.
