What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
The owner’s father was dying of cancer. She asked him how she could remember him after he passed. He responded, “Do what you love, exceed your dreams. Be who you are, and people will come. I will always be here. I will be in the wind.” Auria was chosen because it means “wind.”
