My Story

In 2006, my husband and I separated and I became a single mom of 3 young boys. Thanks to the support of my family, I was able to finish college and buy a home.  But, I was fortunate. Not everyone has family support. My son’s are now successful adults, but the struggles families face now are more significant than 2006.

As a small business owner, I understand the needs of businesses in our area. I helped my mom establish her business, Mary G. Stewart CPA PA before moving on to website design. In September of 2023, I bought my business… 24 days before Hurricane Ian.

My family has lived in Charlotte County for over 100 years. We have seen it grow from small tents mining for minerals to a small metropolitan. My dad told stories of the original ice house. My children were born and raised here. We all love this community and feel we can help make it better.
