Melissa Flory Mathis, founder and chief consultant, is a balanced blend of a right-brained lover of creativity and expression and a left-brained type-A professional. Since early childhood she has had a creative spirit, love of color, fascination with juxtaposition, an endless envy of innate artistic talent, and a deep appreciation of history and items of quality. Her commitment to the highest level of education and her research skills were developed throughout her formative years spent at Fort Worth Country Day School and perpetuated throughout her academic career. Her business acumen has been honed through lifelong exposure to business and growth in the vibrant Texas economy as well as years spent submerged in the intense professional environment of New York City.
