Andrea Ouargli Headsot

Since receiving the Gift + Stationery 40 Under 40 Award, what amazing new adventures have you undertaken?

Shortly after receiving the 40 under 40 award, my husband and I had our first child, Leo.  Parenthood has definitely been the most amazing adventure ever. And juggling work and family has forced me to become more efficient in all areas of my life.

It is very rewarding to be recognized within the gift industry. Personally and professionally, it has encouraged me to be a role model for my younger colleagues that are just starting their careers.
