Meet The Team:
Jessica – OwnerI’m originally from Iowa, but grew up mostly in the Twin Cities, Minnesota where I met and married my husband. In 2004 we moved to Alpine with our daughter. I currently have a Sophomore and 5th grader in Alpine ISD, and lots of fur critters. We love the small town life! I had always wanted my own shop, and after working out of my home we had been watching for properties. We had our eyes on a couple places and when our current location became available, we felt like it was perfect for our vision.. and here we are!
I love art, crafting, yoga, makeup, binge watching reality TV, writing, or coming up with my next big adventure. I’m usually doing a mix of the above at the same time because of how my creative mind works.
I love pineapple on my pizza & memes. Wished I lived right on the warm ocean where I could do yoga, meditate and take long walks (A fountain will have to do.. for now.) I want a Maine Coon! And I hate hugs – which is a serious pastime in Texas let me tell you! lol
Most popular question? “What’s your business name all about? What’s it mean?” Emergo means Emerge. It is adapted from the Latin saying Luctor et Emergo – “Struggle and Emerge” which has a very personal meaning for me after losing my father to suicide. When I founded Emergo Arts in 2016, I wanted to carry that importance into the business as a reminder.
Amanda – ManagerA transplant from the great state of Arkansas, I moved to Alpine with my husband and two sons nearly 13 years ago. I currently homeschool our 14 year old and our 22 year old attends Arkansas Tech. Other household members include 3 dogs, a cat, a Beta fish and 7 chickens.
I’ve been a licensed insurance agent for over 7 years but took a break while homeschooling and traveling.
During my downtime you’ll usually find me watching The Office on Netflix, working on my potential blog (watch for it! It’s still in the planning phase at the moment), organizing or working on new hobbies such as soap making.
When my best friend mentioned she was going to make her dream of owning a boutique a reality in Alpine, I thought she was a little crazy. But, isn’t that how most dreams begin, with a dash of crazy? So, here we are nearly 2 years later and more successful than either of us imagined it could be. The town has embraced Emergo and we have some of the best customers (friends) imaginable! Looking forward to what the future holds for Jessica and her crazy dream!
