Jill Louden

That is me...Jill Marie Louden...the "pursen" behind the Switch Purse!   Who am I?  I am someone who loves to create and design, which is one of the reasons why the Switch Purse came into existence.  The creative side of me was itching to get out and come alive.

I was wearing many hats from a being mom to a paralegal to a coach...and had so many interests from sports to music and fitness--but I still felt that something was missing....
