How it Started

How it Started

Essentials with Eden was founded by two Ole Miss students. 

Ross and I met the summer before I moved in at Ole Miss. He was a huge help in the moving in process. As we were doing so, our vision for Essentials with Eden started. 

During that year, we both got involved with CRU (Campus Crusade for Christ) and dreamed of going on their summer mission to Jackson Hole, WY.

Our parent encouraged us to raise all of our money for this mission ourselves, so this is when Essentials with Eden really began. 

Helping students move in to dorms and seeing the excitement on each of their faces is what keeps our business going. 

I was fortunate to have help when I moved in, so we want to help every student's dorm room at Ole Miss feel like home. 

I graduated from the University of Mississippi in May of 2021 with a bachelor's degree in Integrated Marketing Communications.

Ross is also an Ole Miss graduate. He obtained an bachelor's degree in Accountancy in 2020. He obtained a Master's degree in Data Analytics & Accountancy the following year. He is currently working for the Blackburn Group in Oxford, MS.
