Hive Member Spotlight - Catherine Javier-Wong - Virginia



I am married with a three-year-old daughter and a shih-tzu.
I was born and raised in Virginia, but have been fortunate enough to have traveled around the world. I especially enjoyed a semester abroad in Florence, Italy while a junior in college. My husband & I met at his house, but he actually fell in love with me (from afar) two years before that at the christening of my godson. Our funnest date was when he created "dinner and a movie" on his bedroom floor - picnic with fast food in front of the tv & dvd player :)

My birthday is on May 8, which makes me a Taurus. I’m a bull through and through, but a really cute one ;)

I have a BA in Journalism, but became a wedding planner. I burned out from that and went into childcare, until I became a full-time mommy. I love to make others smile, enjoy celebrity gossip, and have a (borderline obsessive) crush on Justin Timberlake.

The idea of an affordable custom fragrance was what drew me to Urban Botanic. Personalized perfume has always been on my “To Do/Have Before I Die” list, but was always TOO EXPENSIVE! However, it was the genuine enthusiasm and camaraderie on the WAHM message board that convinced me to join the UB Family

My support network is pretty skeptical with the exception of a handful of close friends – gee, I really have my work cut out for me! At this point, I’m not sure about the kind of support I need from fellow hive members. I am, however, really excited about the opportunity to introduce UB to the DC Area!

I scored the highest in Fruity, followed be Leafy. I always figured I was a Floral, but my results were right on the money! Woodsy came in third with Floral, Herby & Spicy in a three-way tie with the smallest percentage.

Where do you I see myself with Urban Botanic in the next year? Flourishing and so busy that I have to hire a personal assistant! (Or at the very least be successful enough to have paid for a maid and a couple family vacations…)

What is my one personality trait I think will help me be successful at UB? My (previous) skepticism that has turned me into a firm believer in the company and the product! That, and my witty sense of self.
If I were a candy, I'd be one of those conversational hearts exchanged during Valentine's Day because I'm a romantic, yellow (my Asian complexion?), and am a born communicator! Also, because they remind me of a happy childhood and can be mischievous...

It's a fight to the death over Mr. Justin Timberlake, sister. I heart him, too! ;)

So glad to have you on our team! Your wedding planning experience will serve you sooo well with UB!
