Kelly Warr

The chapters in my life book are not perfect. Some are happy, others messy, maybe exciting or a bit dull. And the great thing about this is that each chapter helped develop me into the genuine woman that I am today. I am a mother, daughter, sibling, friend, and entreprenurse. I am typically happy, prefer outdoors, love live music and am a foodie wannabe. Read more>>

Dr. Amanda Sneed, PT, DPT

Health and Healing PT started because I am stubborn and frustrated. I started out my journey as a young physical therapist, wanting to serve women and some of the unique health issues we faced. I wanted to provide top quality individualized care, but I quickly realized, that in our current healthcare climate, this just isn’t a possibility. Currently, insurance reimbursement rates for physical therapy services are declining, so therapists are getting paid less and less to treat patients. Read more>>

Everything started for me in 2015, when I was doing a small remodel job in our previous home. I was building some floating shelves for the room and couldn’t believe how much I enjoyed the project. That turned in to a cornice over the window, a custom finish on the cabinets, and a rolling barn door for the entry. From that point on, everything snowballed into where I’m at today. I started with some cutting boards and pens, and that has evolved into many custom tables, chairs and shelving units. Read more>>

Christopher Morris

I am a believer in God and Christ as my Savior. I continue to use the talents that God has provided me, to bless and inspire those around me. I am a Creative who is walking side by side with our Creator. I have a true interest in Art, Architecture, and other Artists. I just love creativity and to create, myself. I believe in simplicity and providing complexity in the details. This is probably why I am so attracted to Modern-style Architecture and Furniture, as well as certain Pop Art and Fashion. Read more>>

TJ Mac

I was born in Waco, Texas but moved around the DFW area throughout my childhood. I’ve always had a love and passion for poetry and writing since grade school but I didn’t start making music until my senior year in high school. At first it was kind of a hobby but didn’t fully take it seriously until after I graduated in 2016. For a while I had trouble finding my own sound. Read more>>

Cassie Nickle

I’ve been working with babies since I was old enough to be a junior volunteer in the church nursery, and that’s still where you’ll find me every other Sunday in non-Covid-19 times. I once flew to Malaysia with some friends who were moving to help with their baby and preschooler while they got settled. Baby at a party? Dibs. Pick them up with your coat on your way out. Read more>>

Michelle Cortez Gonzales

I grew up in a blue-collar Mexican-American neighborhood made up of steelworkers, in the Worth Heights Neighborhood of Fort Worth, Texas. I was surrounded by rich history and culture, but these experiences and stories were never discussed or shared with younger generations such as myself. At an early age, I became hungry for history and to know more about my heritage. Read more>>

Nicki Smith

Gnova, inspired by my late mom Genova, came about a few years ago. Growing up my mom was one of the most talented individuals I knew. She was a singer, seamstress and probably the most benevolent person around. She met no strangers and would help anyone she could! Watching how she carried herself, inspired me then and now. She passed when I was 12 years old, but I’ll never forget the wonderful, talented woman she was or the lessons she taught me. Read more>>

Robert Copeland

I grew up in the cattle business, went off to college, worked in corporate America, dropped out in 1999, and I’ve been back on the farm since. Ten years ago, I began selling produce and eggs, then added grassfed beef sales five years later. I have a partner, Michael and Maria Nihsen and together we produce about 15,000 pounds of grassfed, no antibiotics/no hormones, clean beef annually, which we sell direct to customers. Read more>>
