Hello, my name is Sharon. When our son Ian was diagnosed with Autism in 2004, my husband and I didn't know where to turn. After getting over the initial shock, we decided to forge forward and embrace Ian for who he is instead of who he isn't.

When I contemplate our situation after many years of being an advocate for Ian, IEP meetings, the day to day challenges, etc, I realize that patience and love brought me through the tough times. Rather than looking at everyday as a struggle, I realized that Ian has so many gifts to share with the world. I look forward to the years ahead.

In an effort to make a difference for others and also to teach Ian work responsibility, I decided to start a business. I am extremely proud of where KoolCharm is heading, and even more proud to let you know that Ian packages every single pendant that I create :)

Much love and happiness on your journey.
