Meet Shunta

Hello there! I'm Shunta (shun-tay), owner and creator of Because of Zoe Designs.  I'm a Georgia girl at heart (born and raised) but currently reside in Greenville, South Carolina with my husband, Troy, and three year old daughter, Zoe.  I love sweet tea mixed with lemonade and long walks in IKEA, Target and any and every TJMaxx/Homegoods I come across (literally, when we vacation I seek them out).  

In 2001 I left Georgia to attend Furman University where I graduated with a degree in Political Science.  After Furman, I made my way to the small town of Athens, Georgia to attend law school at the University of Georgia.  Becoming a lawyer had been a dream of mine for most of my young adult life and in 2008 that dream came to pass and I moved to Greenville to get married and begin my legal career.  As far as I was concerned, I would practice law in some form or fashion for the remainder of my adult life.  I was wrong! 

In 2013 Zoe was born and I became a mom!  Like most moms of girls, I quickly became obsessed with hair bows and headbands and needed a new bow for EVERY occasion (you know, like Monday and Tuesday).  I found that Zoe's room was swarming with hair bows and as we prepared for her one year pictures I noticed that almost all of her hair bows looked alike.  I shopped around and couldn't find colorful prints, bright florals, stripes, polka dots, the things that I loved!  So I decided to source out fabrics that I loved and turn them into hair bows.  What began at my dining room table has now grown into a business that provides handmade memories to thousands of families across the United States and abroad. 


In September 2015 I left private practice to pursue Because of Zoe full time and I haven't looked back since!  I wake up every day excited about what lies ahead, passionate about this business and grateful for the opportunity to provide well made hair accessories to little girls around the world.

I didn't know how brave I was.  To walk away from a career that I worked so tirelessly for was a bold move.  Because of that boldness, however, I now have the opportunity to do what excites me, allows me to be creative, and use my strengths.  You can find me over on Instagram @becauseofzoe and I'm in our exclusive Facebook group daily, the Bozlover's Lounge which you can access here.  I love hearing from my customers and fellow women in business.  You can reach me anytime at Thank you for stopping by to get to know me and to learn why I am so passionate about Because of Zoe.  

XO, Shunta
