Ocean Grace was founded by Michelle and named after her family’s love of living near the ocean, its calming effect on their 3 living children, and after her daughter Grace whom she lost during her 5th month of pregnancy. Ocean Grace is her daughter’s legacy that teaches us to cherish our children, overcome our fears and follow our dreams.
