One of the reasons why I am buzzing is I had the chance yesterday to meet Aimee McQuilkin, the dynamic, filled with energy (it rubbed off) mom of two young girls, and fashionista of Missoula. Aimee owns and operates Betty's DIvine - an absolutely divine shop if I say so myself. Terrifically trendy - it is like walking into a very hip large closet. There is a little bit of this and a little bit of that - from stylish bras to boots to jackets to jewelry to on and on.
I found Aimee's take on Montana fascinating. She originally moved to Montana to go to the University of Montana. She's never left town and she's never looked back. For her the city is a cultural melting pot. It invigorates her and keeps her moving. Armed with a psychology degree she says she uses it a lot in the store. She comes across as a woman who would help others in a pinch.
So good-bye, Montana for now. Here's Aimee in a 4-minute video and a 5-minute audio interview. Enjoy!
