"Faith, faith... It almost sounds like a password. In time I learned that the real challenge in our job, and maybe not just in ours, lies in transforming other people's faith in us into self-confidence, self-esteem, a belief in ourselves and our abilities. That's where the experience begins, the moment you start believing in yourself, and you treasure both your successes and your mistakes."
- Sophia Loren

Heleana is a force of nature. The founder of In Venus Veritas and The Petrolette, and a co-founder of Rising Sun Workshop. Heleana shares her love of vintage cars, riding motorcycles, and (not-so-secretly) dreams of flying planes and piloting a riva aquariva (a la Sophia Loren) very fast through the canals of Venice. Supportive and connected, community is her lifeblood, and she is as real as they come.
