Meet Kelin Henry of Nashira

Today we’d like to introduce you to Kelin Henry.

Kelin, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I graduated from CSUN in 2003, with a degree in Interior Design. Immediately after college, I began working for an Interior Design firm. Design of any kind has always been my passion, whether it’s interiors, party planning, floral arranging… I feel most alive when I am creating.

In 2005, I had my first child and became a full-time stay at home mom. Fast forward to today, and I have four children ranging in age from 7 to 13! I put my career on hold to raise my children and recently decided it was time to get back to work.

Rather than seeking employment, I decided to create my own company which is Nashira. The meaning of Nashira is “Bearer of Good News.” For now, I am focusing specifically on cannabis inspired jewelry. I noticed in my own search for cannabis jewelry that it was difficult to find tasteful, classy AND affordable pieces.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
After being out of the workforce for the past 14 years, deciding to become an entrepreneur is a bit scary. However, I knew that in order for me to juggle being a mom of four young children, it was important to have a flexible schedule.

Surprisingly, Nashira’s journey has been pretty smooth so far! I completely attribute that to my clientele. I have found that our cannabis community is so supportive of each other’s endeavors.

Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Nashira – what should we know?
When I first came up with the idea of Nashira, I one hundred percent knew that I wanted to be in the cannabis industry. I just wasn’t sure what that was going to be! My goal, however, has always been to cater towards individuals who enjoy beautiful things and are also conservative with their spending.

Since Nashira means, “Bearer of Good News,” I am confident that there are so many different avenues for the future. For now, I am focusing on cannabis inspired jewelry. Down the road, I would LOVE to incorporate my design background and do cannabis event planning as well as cannabis floral design.

I believe what sets Nashira apart is the tasteful pieces of jewelry which come in beautiful packaging at an affordable price. Every order comes with a hand-written thank you note and a custom Nashira jewelry pouch, I take pride in the details! I love the feedback from all of my clients once they receive their order.

Any shoutouts? Who else deserves credit in this story – who has played a meaningful role?
I have had a ton of encouragement along the way, but I believe the biggest impact Nashira has had, is on my four children. They are constantly telling me how proud they are of what I have created.

It is so important for them to see that if they set their minds to something, they can accomplish their goals. It has been my personal experience that the cannabis community is made up of truly remarkable and supportive individuals.
