This announcement has been a long-time coming, but with today being the official launch of my business (yay!!), I figured it was time to tell my story to the best of my ability (though I know I will never fully be able to justify it in just a couple paragraphs).
Some of you don’t know, but up until this past May I was working full-time as a 4-H Educator for Purdue University. And while I was (and still am) incredibly grateful for my co-workers, the lives I was able to impact, and for my mentors, I just knew it was time for me to move on. Let me explain.
My husband, Jake, is a horse veterinarian, and while most people think that sounds really awesome (and it is), with that comes a lot of crazy hours. This may come as a shock, but horses usually don’t decide to get sick or hurt between the convenient hours of 9-5. We are so grateful for my husband’s job and he loves what he does, but the schedule and hours can be demanding. While I was working for 4-H, I too was working a lot of evenings and weekends. Though Jake and I are not yet parents, we dream of starting a family someday and we knew that both of us working those hours just weren’t sustainable for us in the long-term.
Prior to all of that, our first year of marriage took us to Idaho for my husband to complete a veterinary internship. While there, Jake had to spend every other night and every other weekend at the hospital while I was back at our little apartment. I was working from home remotely and we didn’t know a single soul within hundreds of miles when we moved there. Needless to say, I was lonely and bored. I knew I needed to pick up some hobbies to keep from going insane.
I started decorating our little apartment, learning about photography and floral design, and pretty much started learning every single thing I could about design. What started as a hobby, grew into much more and I just couldn’t get enough. I was hooked. I started attending workshops on design and taking online classes. Next thing I knew, I was learning about business and marketing, and everything that goes into entrepreneurship.
Fast forward about two and a half years later, and here we are. My last day with Purdue was on May 20th, and over the last couple months I have been quietly building a brand that was infused with heart and intention. I am incredibly excited/humbled/grateful to introduce you to Lindsay Jensen, LLC! As an interior design and styling brand, my mission is to help your family thrive by creating a home that supports a lifestyle you love.
I offer three different packages, and I encourage you to check out my offerings here. I would love for you to follow me on Instagram and Facebook as I post there quite often about some projects I have in the works, and subscribe to my monthly newsletter. And stay tuned, I’ll be hosting a giveaway on Wednesday that you won’t want to miss! Thank you so much for reading my story and for following along this journey with me!
