Q & A
Hi Ceandrys, where are you from? I am originally from New Orleans, LA, but have lived in Ewa Beach, Hawaii for the past 25 years.
How many kids do you have? I have 4 beautiful children
What do you love about Peachtree City and surrounding areas? I love the serene atmosphere, family (Ohana) surrounding and four seasons which is something not experienced in Hawaii the past years.
What’s your favorite restaurant and/or place to shop in Peachtree City and/or surrounding areas? I currently don’t have one but I have to admit I love RAW 🙂
Tell us about your career? For 15 years I served as Executive Pastor in Hawaii alongside my husband at I4TK managing 22 sub departments in organizational structure and servant leadership training. Since the age of 5 I have played music and was on national television shows such as Fame, Tony Brown’s Journal and other programs. While music was a passion for me there was always a call of being creative and authentic. Out of the box artistry is a passion for me. While living on the island of Oahu and seeing the power of family and the infrastructure it encompasses, I yearned to impact one area I saw that was lacking and that was the unity of sisterhood amongst women. In 2018, I became a certified Life Coach from IPEC and started understanding levels of energy were extremely vital. Understanding the power of aromatherapy became a major interest for me. Therefore, I started studying aromatic blends and launched my perfume line RAW Perfumes Inc.
How did you decide on this Business? After launching a perfume line I had my own war because my name wasn’t known. I didn’t have a big influencer pushing my product so discouragement and failure overwhelmed me. Instead of sitting in what I felt was failure, I began to explore that there was something greater and started to seek counsel and wisdom on what I was really called to do. This message could reach many whether you are a career woman, a mom, an entrepreneur, spiritual person, artist, etc. The butterfly was and is my symbol. In life, we will have several transformational periods and how we see that is key. Using the Rs is key…one representing my past and how it can help the second R my future and push me to become the best me I can be.
Jewels are raw and three of the most precious ones we love. In the raw state of things we don’t always understand the purpose and vitality of it’s beauty.
Gold, in the process of fire, it becomes Refined and beautiful to look upon
Pearl, the irritant inside, creates a fluid that manifest such a beautiful pearl
Diamond, where what we think is to cut us, is really a part of shaping us to be the great sparkle we see.
So in using RAW herbs, flowers, minerals, powders when connected to nature (you and me) we enjoy the amazing benefits and purpose of what they were created to do and be.
What is the best thing about your job? We get to connect with amazing people, encourage them, empower them to love the skin that they are in and formulating new products while attending school and always educating myself with what amazing properties our earth has to offer us.
