Welcome to Damaris Inc! I am so excited to share with you what I have been working on for some time now. A lifestyle brand for the modern woman. I wanted to offer women a site where you could shop, yet find insightful articles worth reading. Hope that we can bring you useful information and products that you love!
A little about me, my name is Damaris and I was born and raised in New York City–the lower east side of Manhattan to be exact. I went to Pace University where I received my B.S. majoring in Information Systems with a minor in Computer Science. It was while in college that I met my dear husband. He proposed shortly after 9/11, after dating for 2 years, and we were married 6 months later. Nothing like a near death experience to really make you appreciate people and what they mean to you! We now have 2 beautiful kids, my son Daniel and my daughter Isabella.
A year after my son was born we moved to Houston, TX for my husbands’ job and fell in love with what the city had to offer. However, we did move back to NYC 2 years later and stayed there for 2 years before making the move back to Houston, where we still live today.
I have been working since I was 14 holding various jobs from childrens computer teacher, medical assistant, website admin, database developer, etc. But for the last 10 years I have been working as a Project Manager in the technology sector and I can truly say I love it. I guess you can say I have a knack for planning things, managing budgets and telling people what to do ;-). You can call me a boss lady, thank you!
I decided in 2014 to go back to school and get my masters and did just that. Working full time, wrangling 2 kids and a dog, and taking care of a household just wasn’t enough I guess. I finished in 2 years and got my MBA from Texas A&M with a 3.9 GPA–even I was astounded. But I have to admit I couldn’t have done it without my husbands support.
Now that I am done with school I figured I would dedicate my time to my personal interests. I am always looking at beauty, fashion, new styles, reading books to better my career and self or just for fun; so I thought what better way than to share these interests with fellow like minded women than this avenue here.
We have so much information available at our fingertips today, it is amazing. I hope you find this site provides becomes a great source for you and a place you can always return too. I hope to find great products for you that I would use myself, write blogs and provide video content so stay tuned!!

Enjoy and stay chic!
