Jane Spicer

As a true Arizona native, I love sunsets and saguaros. One of our newest headcovers is a Roadrunner, another native of the Southwest. Daphne’s is a home-grown Arizona company, although we are now represented in 75 countries. Our Phoenix headquarters contains a warehouse and manufacturing base, so I get to be involved, “hands-on,” with some of our production. Read more>>

I would say the most complement I hear often from clients and work industry partners is my authenticity shines in every conversation.

I’ve always had this overwhelming feeling that I was meant to do something special and something that was on my terms so never finding that had always weighed on me.
