The Mess and The Solution
With little ones, messy mealtimes were a big problem. As a frustrated mom, I took matters into my own hands and was determined to create a bib that would solve my problem. It did. I was a happy mom. That experience made me realize that problem-solving fosters innovation. As the Inventor of Mr. Zippy Bibs, my goal is to make life less messy for other moms too.

An Interesting Fact:
Life can be full of surprises. It was definitely a surprise when I saw the date printed on my patent certificate. The USPTO granted my patent on May 6, 2003.
So why was that a surprise? May 6th is also my twin sons birthday.
