My business is called Kustem Creations LLC an acronym for the animals I have loved in my life. Writing and poetry was my dream job as a child. Instead I made a practical choice to create a career in the business world. Raised in America, I followed my immigrant Slovak family's traditions, but wanted to move west. Off to test my athletic abilities and create money that would not come from a man in my life; I moved to the mountains of Colorado and began a lifetime quest to handle my high pressure business position. I looked for introspection in my writing, poetry, photography and outdoor adventures. I was a single mother of one, travelling and backpacking various corners of the world to find solace in nature and other cultures.
