My name is Shay Dobbins, I am the proud owner of All Things Carlee. I was born and raised in a small town called Anniston. I was blessed to have some of the most amazing friends and family growing up.
At 21, I had my first child. I was still in college and living alone. It was difficult managing a family, attending school, and working full-time but I have always been determined and focused. My family was supportive and without them & prayer, I would not have made it this far. The last year of my undergraduate, I received news that I was expecting my second bundle of joy. I was excited about bringing my baby girl into the world, but I knew that I had to work even harder to ensure my family would be taken care of.
I have always wanted to own and operate my own daycare facility. I felt that it was the perfect career for me at the time. I would be able to teach children, be creative and be my own boss! So in 2014, I graduated from Jacksonville State University (Go Gamecocks!) with a Bachelor’s Degree in Family and Consumer Science: Child Development.
I felt uncomfortable in my life and in my career choices after graduating. I had no luck securing a job with a modest income and flexible schedule, I decided to work part-time as a substitute teacher and devote my full attention to my family. During that time, I was able to pray, meditate, and re-evaluate my goals.
What holds most people back isn’t the quality of their ideas, but their lack of faith in themselves. You have to live your life as if you are already where you want to be.
So here I am, full of faith and ideas. Ideas that I want to share with moms everywhere. Ideas that make being a busy mom easier and ideas that make parenting fun. After months of researching and dedication, I created a company for moms of young girls. It was inspired by my life parenting my second child, Carlee.
All Things Carlee aims to provide everyday moms with easy access to trendy clothes, care for natural hair, parenting tips, and other resources needed to manage a busy household in a fun way.
