A LITTLE ABOUT US
MEET TOM & SHERI (THE INSPIRATION)
My father, Tom is an entrepreneur from the Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas area. Tom loves to fly fish, play golf and spend quality time with friends and family. My mother, Sheri, is an interior decorator and the greatest mom in North America. She also loves to cut a rug at parties. My parents have been married 38 years and raised three kids. The Eudaly family likes both dogs and (some) cats, good music, the mountains, and living life to the full. We dislike most duck faces (except for real ducks’ faces) and all forms of ironing and wrinkled clothes.

MEET HEATHER (CO-FOUNDER)
is the Head of Operations for Tom & Sheri's Products. She is passionate about helping others and creating value for customers. Heather bares the scars of an iron burn from early in her professional life and, as an idealistic Enneagram 1, Heather knew there had to be a better way. She values efficiency and making the most of the time she's given- not ironing...in said free time, Heather enjoys good food, great friends, new experiences, and being active. She hopes to run her second marathon in 2019. Heather's favorite season is 'tee-ball season' when she's back on the field with the most amazing 4-7 year olds at Mercy Street Dallas. Did you know Tom & Sheri's gives back a portion of all proceeds to charities? Heather LOVES working here for many reasons, but this is at the top. She believes, like Dr. MLK, "The time is always right to do what is right."
