Before and After - Playbill 5.21.22
Cari worked hard to get to this positive place and has a burning desire to help others turn things around like she did. After her dad passed, her faith was restored when she had her beautiful baby boy. Then she endured heartbreaking loss after loss, including her beloved mom, uncle, grandmother, aunt, and close friends, along with two miscarriages.
During this time, she also went through two significantly bad work experiences in a row. She had gained weight and was unhappy so she decided it was time to rediscover her joy and vitality. Cari explains that, at the end of the day, we all go through some level of trauma, confusion, and heartbreak but she has learned that as long we can laugh about something we can get through anything.
When asked, ’Are you okay?’ her response was often, “No, but I am funny.” Then in January 2021, some brilliant boss babes introduced her to Tori Belle.
Although she had no idea how to do the "girl thing," and had never applied eyeliner before, she knew the product was genius. She saw so much potential and she took the leap!
Thanks to her partnership with Tori Belle, her love of TikTok, and 20K followers she found her NEW happy place!
“Tori Belle gave me something that no one has ever given me before. A chance to thrive in business, a sense of belonging and the ability to be not just accepted but celebrated for who I am, and most importantly, a place to giggle!”
Having let go of the past, she now spreads the message that the magic truly is in you. Cari wants us all to remember, “Know you are magic. Know you can do anything you put your mind to. Grab YOUR cape and FLY!”
