They have been married for 6 years, but together for 14 years. They started Karma Candle Makers in 2009  by accident and never imagined it would grow into the business it did. In 2020, they decided that they wanted to step away from the candle business to try something new. Despite this, the website continued to sell candles throughout the pandemic.
