Itarsha Payne was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. She left the hustle and bustle of city life behind and made North Carolina her home twenty-three years ago. Itarsha has a diverse and dynamic background, which extends from sales & marketing, to managing and operating multi-unit assets and real estate for almost fifteen years. Her multi-faceted background and skills, along with her entrepreneurial spirit, is what launched her into business ownership. Itarsha is co-owner and operator of Two Chicks And A Mop LLC and Two Chicks Fashions Boutique, both operating in Raleigh, North Carolina and surrounding areas. Both business enterprises are slated to expand outside North Carolina over the next five years. When she isn't busy running her two businesses, she's busy running, literally!  Itarsha’s love for running started over seven years ago and is still strong today. She contributes her love and dedication for running and living a healthy lifestyle to wanting to be the best version of herself that she can be, and to help others do the same. That love and passion for running is why she has shared her journey in hopes that you, too, will fall in love with running! Itarsha my be contacted via Facebook: Itarsha Payne or by email: itarsharunandsmelltheroses@mail.com
