How did you come up with the name for your business?
Little Nomad is about the idea of how little ones interpret and navigate the world. The name NOMAD is also an acronym for my family.
How did you get the idea for your business?
By hanging out with friends and looking at the changing landscape of parenting, I felt there was an opportunity to tell a new story in what people thought of a kids shop. As parents and care givers become more forward thinking, I felt there was an opportunity to serve this growing market.

I love that Richmond is a very hands on city. Most of the strides Richmond has made over the last 10-15 years have been from grass roots movements.
What's the best thing about being a local business owner?
It's great to have a concept, watch it come to fruition, and have your idea be well received by folks in the community. It's also a good feeling to be a part of a collective of entrepreneurs who are committed to creating a strong and vibrant community.
