Karyn Morris, Founder/Owner

Karyn grew up in Taylor and will always be a Duck.  Her hobbies include home décor, reading, church youth work, and recreational softball. As a graduate from Abilene Christian University with a B.S. in Accounting, Karyn brings an organization and analytical perspective to the business.  Her work in the home building industry with Lennar Homes for her first 2 years out of college established her love for the home, and exposed her to valuable customer feedback regarding style and interests.  For the last year, Karyn served as the Christian Counselor at Brentwood Christian School in the academic advising office and was able to exercise her love for students, as well as gain valuable experience in the service industry and client facing roles.  Karyn, along with Jeff, serve as youth leaders for the class of 2019 at the Westover Hills Church of Christ. Karyn’s vision and leadership will serve her well at Sweet & Southern Finds. She is excited to be back in Taylor and serving the community she grew up in and loves!

 


Jeff Morris, Co-founder/Finance

Jeff married into the passion for home décor and tolerates his ruffled bedspread, but truly admires Karyn’s natural eye for style and proudly credits her with all their home décor.  Jeff also graduated from ACU with a B.S. in biochemistry, going on to Texas A&M to earn his Masters in Business Administration (MBA).  Jeff worked for Kalon Biotherapeutics, instrumental in developing their accounting and invoicing systems and processes for its federal subcontract with the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority.  As the Business Project Manager, he was the lead on cost analytics for both internal processing and business development for potential clients.  In 2013, Jeff transitioned to Brentwood Christian School to intersect his business acumen and his mission-mindedness.  As the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) of a top-three private school in Austin, Jeff brings both an operations and financial background to the table.  Jeff also serves as the President of his and Karyn’s neighborhood Home Owners Association (HOA).
