Tell us about your company and what you do?

Carolina Gift Wrapping offers gift wrapping services and products. From high-quality gift packaging materials to full-service gift box design, I aim to deliver a convenient yet flexible service to customers looking for an alternative to gift bags.

How did you get started in your industry?

I have always enjoyed wrapping presents for family members and friends. Through a chance encounter with the owner of a retail store, I was motivated to turn a fun hobby into a small business.

What is something about your business that most people do not know?

In addition to my customized gift-wrapping service, I like to bring attention to what North Carolina has to offer. Hence, I also offer curated gift boxes featuring NC-produced and NC-themed products for Weddings, Employee Celebration, and Customer Appreciation events. I showcase my custom designed NC welcome boxes in my studio at Towerview Office Suites Preston as well as at local wedding shows.

Where do you see your business in 5 years?

I'd like to build partnerships with other small NC businesses to offer their products. I'd also like to provide my services and products to more local businesses.

Other than work, what are you passionate about?

I am passionate about giving back to the local community. I currently serve as a board member for Goodwill Industries of Eastern North Carolina.

What types of activities or hobbies do you enjoy outside of work?

Outside of work, I train for and participate in Spartan races. I am targeting to complete two races in 2022.

Why did you choose Towerview Office Suites Page Creek and how has working here helped your business?

I had been sharing a space and knew that I needed a dedicated, secured space as my business grew. Towerview Office Suites 120 Preston provides a perfect, central location for clients to visit my gift-wrapping studio.
