Arwen started her sales career in high school, working at the local department store and saving for college. After graduating with a Bachelor’s Degree in Liberal Arts, she realized that she was not really qualified for anything and went back to the only thing she really knew. Sales. She worked in real estate for a while, but decided it was too risky, driving into the boondocks with strangers, and changed back to retail sales. The daughter of an author, Arwen decided that the publishing industry would be a good fit and joined Black Opal. When Arwen has free time, she enjoys hiking, digging in the dirt as an amateur archeologist, and swimming—rivers, creeks, lakes, the ocean, mud puddles—she doesn’t care as long as there is enough water to get her swimming suit wet.
