    Roya specializes in using art in her therapy practice, and as her own creative outlet, she creates handmade jewelry out of clay and crochet at Royaboya Handmade. She uses her event management and recreation background with her love of supporting mom owned businesses to host a regular multi-vendor virtual Bazaar for small businesses.

She also loves to play with her wonderful children, husband, and animals where they live and homeschool  in Southern California.
