A note about Linda Coad, by Remi Haygood
I could not ask for a better business partner than Linda Coad. I have known Linda personally and professionally for 10 years. There are many wonderful words to describe Linda, but the five that I adore the most are honest, hard-working, generous, smart, and kind. Linda is also committed to her family — both human and fur babies!
Linda loves and finds peace in the outdoors. She enjoys kayaking, paddle boarding, and SUP yoga. She is happiest in nature and when living a healthy lifestyle. It also truly amazes me that Linda can tell you all about herbal teas and the benefits of each type!
I am so excited to partner with her on this amazing business endeavor.

A note about Remi Haygood, by Linda Coad
Remi and I became fast friends when we met ten years ago. We shared many of the same challenges — both single moms, owned and operated our respective businesses, and we each had a daughter we were determined to raise to be a strong, resilient woman. She loves walking and biking on the Charlotte Rail Trail and her favorite season is winter because she loves to knit by the fireplace while binge-watching Netflix. Remi also has two pets, a Chihuahua rescue named Taco and an English Angora rabbit named Wyatt. She finds it hilarious that Wyatt is bigger than Taco!
Through the years, I’ve seen Remi handle situations with a smile and her bubbly personality. Her customers love her. Even on tough days when things aren’t going right, she always maintains a positive attitude. Simply put, she has grit. I know she will go the extra mile for her customers and our company. I’m happy to start this Coolvio journey with her!
