Adjourn | Pausing intentionally to recenter + return to jubilation

As a self-proclaimed tea lover, I began crafting a vision for a small tea and wellness brand as a teen in Richmond, VA more than 15 years ago. Tea drinking was a major part of my upbringing. Growing up, we routinely enjoy warmed apple juice, sleepytime tea, and the occasional hot toddy. I am also from a community where sun teas + iced teas are LOVE on hot summer days.
In 2014, I lost my dear mother to breast cancer almost 10 years after losing my father to cancer as well. While difficult, their lives inspired me to move forward in designing a life + career I loved. I want my time to be well spent. My parents, rest their souls, led me to pursue the idea of starting a tea and candle shop as a high schooler in a business planning competition and I have been a tea lover/blender/drinker/maker ever since.
I have had the incredible fortune of watching hundreds of students bloom in previous career as an educator. They continue to inspire that lens through which I see my role as a wellness creative + business owner. I look forward to sharing my creative practices with you, love!

At Adjourn, we believe in creating moments to recenter and balance our whole selves through rituals that allow us to Adjourn™️- the practice of pausing intentionally.
In a world where we prioritize hustle culture and moving fast, we know how important it is to pause the noise + busyness of our daily lives to give back a few moments to ourselves.
