About Us

Sometimes life points you in a direction you always wanted to be.  That's how my story with Coco & Charlie's begins.

Growing up in a small town in Nebraska, I spent my days after school hanging out in the back room of a children's shop that my mom worked in. I would put outfits together and loved days when shipments would come in so I could watch them steam the new dresses and skirts to put on display. That was when I knew that I wanted this to be my "someday".

Fast forward a bit and I went off to college and then met my now husband, Andy, in Lincoln, Nebraska.  (Go Huskers!) We moved to Omaha, got married and eventually had our two beautiful daughters, Chloe and Charlotte. Happiness.

Then life went sideways a bit.  (2020, am I right?) I was presented an opportunity to change directions in life. With my family and friends encouragement, I decided it was time to realize my long time dream. It was time to show my girls that you can do anything you put your mind to with hard work and a lot of love.

I am happy to share my dream with you and I hope that you will follow me on my journey for years to come. Welcome to Coco & Charlie's! Thank you for being a part of my story.
