My journey began three years ago.

The day I left my corporate job to be a stay at home mother and support my six-year-old daughter with her anxiety disorder. Transitioning from the corporate world to a full-time mom and home-school teacher was quite a wake-up call.

During that time, I started to take more stock of my personal well being, especially my health and really dove into the opportunity to get back into the shape I was years ago. 

Doing this required upgrading my workout gear from a worn t-shirt and ragged jogging pants. The problem, however, was everywhere I looked there was a bland and simple look that didn’t fit my style. I wanted one-of-a-kind gear to wear when working out or simply hanging out.

In addition, my daughter was slowly recovering from a life-threatening virus, and that traumatic experience sparked a desire to create something meaningful for her. Sania Marie is her namesake and legacy. She loves fashion, and always matches her clothes in a way that complements her quirky and cute style so this is a heartfelt way to honor her.

At first, I was hesitant. I mean really hesitant about embarking on a journey of creating apparel with no experience whatsoever in fashion design.

My husband encouraged my vision and supported me along the way, even sometimes staying up late at nights working with me on the designs. It was an exciting journey but also scary as I thought “Would women really like my stuff?” I was nervous at first because  I felt exposed and wasn’t sure if I could handle the rejection. 

Well, three years later, I have to say you love it and I thank you for being a part of my fantastic journey to “Keep It Casually Sexy” in casual wear that expresses femininity and empowerment, provides comfort and inspiration, effortlessly and in style. 

Behind the scenes, we’re just two creatives who combine custom designs and poetry, using my husband’s 20+ years graphic design experience and my love of scrapbooking.

I hope you continue to enjoy my creations at Sania Marie because I enjoy bringing a smile to your face along with A-1 customer service ( I have over 30 years of experience in customer care under my belt.)

If you have any questions or comments, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
