Local Woman Uses Side Business to Benefit the Community

Tina Henrie (right) presents a donation to  Scottie Draper from ETV News for the No Grave Goes Unadorned project.Many people have come to know Tina Henrie throughout the years through the local hospitality and tourism industry. Most recently, Henrie secured a spot as the face of the Carbon County Office of Tourism, serving as the specialist for the county.Throughout her career, Henrie has nurtured her love of people and meaningful relationships, which prompted her to create a business that she operates after her traditional workday is done.Over one year ago, Henrie began work as an Independent Scentsy Consultant. Early on, she knew she wanted to give back any chance that she could.“One important motto attached to Scentsy and its consultants is to ‘give back more than you take,’” Henrie said. “With this idea in mind, I am able to donate to groups or individuals that I feel strongly about.”In October, she donated over $200 to a local breast cancer resident who was traveling daily for treatments. Recently, she raised over $170 for the American Heart Association, a very personal fundraiser since her mother passed way a short time ago from heart disease. Her desire to give back has grown from there.“After reading an article online about the No Grave Goes Unadorned program, I knew I wanted to do something to help,” Henrie said. “I contacted Scottie Draper with ETV News and told her I wanted to do a fundraiser to help raise money for the program.”Each month, Henrie offers a personal special to her customers where they can get a personalized scent crate. With her recent scent crate, she donated 20% of her commissions to the No Grave Goes Unadorned program. She was able to raise $140 for the project, which will help purchase supplies to ensure each grave is adorned with a handmade flower this Memorial Day.Already looking to give back again, Henrie is currently organizing fundraiser to benefit Wellington Pioneer Days. If you or your organization are interested in a fundraiser and would like more information, please contact Tina Henrie at (435) 630-1670. read more
