Today we meet Alana Rivera, our Sponsor Co-Chair and Tweeter.
In 2004 Alana moved to San Francisco with happy thoughts of working for the man in a PR firm. After a horrible stint at a "electric rental car" company for tourists and a multi year "what if I want to be a lawyer" adventure in legal support, Alana finally found a dreamy PR job. Fortunately, via this PR miracle, Alana realized that she really didnt want to do PR or work for the man after all.
Lucky enough for her, right before the PR job, Alana had received a book on soap making after complaining about her lack of hobbies to her mom.
Eventually, she realized that her true passion was products, and after completing a Certificate in Herbalism (study of medicinal qualities of herbs) she started an eco conscious bath and body company, and thus Etta + Billie was born.
She loves to cook and is an avid reader who is absolutely obsessed with the True Blood series at the moment. She desperately wants a dog but must resign herself to fish for the time being. Alana likes to dress up in 80s prom dresses and trys to live her life in a more earth friendly manner.
Alana is the Sponsor Co-Chair, the official Handmade Ho Down Tweeter, and is responsible for keeping us all clean.
