Quad City Mom’s Blog is proud to introduce you to a new amazing mother and sponsor Devon Schaaf, Arbonne Independent Consultant Area Manager. I was blessed to get to chit chat with Devon about Motherhood, business, marriage, and dreams.
Devon is a native to the Quad Cities being born and raised in Geneseo, IL which is a smaller town surrounding the Quad Cities. Heading across the Mississippi, Devon decided to attend University of Iowa and major in Elementary Education and remains a faithful Hawkeye fan to date. Many times high school sweethearts don’t pan out but Devon and her husband Dan put this theory to shame and have been married happily for 5 years. After college Devon and Dan dreamed of heading off to the bright lights and city atmosphere in Chicago but as fate would have it there jobs would locate them back in their hometown of Geneseo which led to their next adventure of building their 1st home. The Schaaf family plugged away at their jobs to make their home a reality.
Devon was invited by a dear friend to attend a presentation of Arbonne products. Arbonne is a Swiss based line of wellness, skincare, and make-up which prides itself on being pure, safe and beneficial products. Over the years Devon commented how she had a problem finding a lotion that really worked and moisturized her skin rather than sit on the top of her skin. It had been a lifelong dream of Devon’s to be a stay at home mom but with their new home Devon didn’t imagine that would be a possibility till she was introduced to the opportunity in Arbonne. Not only were their products rated among the best in the country but this would allow Devon to replace her teaching salary so she could stay at home with her children. Along with being able to stay at home with her family Devon was able to reach dreams within a year that she would only reach in the teaching profession after 30 years. Devon is able to live out her passion for life every day in helping people get what they say they want in life. It has been 5 years since Devon started her journey with Arbonne and it has grown her self-confidence, patience, the ability to set goals and attain them and finally DREAM (what job lets you do that?)
Along with being a Wife, friend, and consultant with Arbonne Devon has other passions in life such as boating with friends, going out to eat with her husband, traveling, race coordinator for Drew’s Faithful Feet race, and recently blogging. Some of her favorite blogs are Young House Love, Perfecting the Pairing, and Jack 2 random; of course above all these passions are her greatest loves of all: her children. Devon is the proud mother of 2 heavenly children and 2 earthly children. Hayden is 3 years old and Reese is 6 months. The Schaaf children like to keep their mom busy with frequent outings of play dates with friends, drop offs at preschool, visits with grandparents, and cheering on the Packers. Devon has also relished in the community that lies within blogs among mothers and the ability to reach moms in different stages of life to connect with.
Devon is excited to begin introducing the pure, safe, and beneficial products of Arbonne to our community at QCMB and to share in the joys, and lasting memories of mommyhood. Check out her site at http://www.devonschaaf.myarbonne.com/
Stay tuned for future posts from Devon and her portion of Mommy Makeovers!!!
