I started Crown Abbey back in 2015 after realizing my experiences in life were quite unique. Working at Johnson & Johnson for ten years had given me the fundamental skills in R&D and Project Management, as well as a deep understanding in baby and adult skin. I started as a formulator, but moved quickly to nonwoven products; first pantyliners and pads, and then on to wet wipes.
Moving to PDI, expanded my knowledge into EPA disinfectants, and I managed the launch of several key products there; from our first bleach wipes, to upgrades in quats and no-rinse formulations. From there, I took really the biggest step into the unknown… taking a role at a start-up, where I was one of five women, and the only technical one! To say we all had to roll up our sleeves is an understatement! It became normal to present to the Board in the morning and dash over to the warehouse to help re-pack products. It was really exciting though, as we launched a whole new category into retail – Maternal products, just for pregnant and lactating women. This is where I honed my skills of supplements, launching both softgels and multivitamin pills, as well as OTC pain relief.
After that I formed Crown Abbey, and I’m happy to say, we have been fortunate enough to have the best people as well as wonderful clients ever since! I look forward to getting to know you and your brands,
