Katia Dabdoub Hechema


Katia’s most treasured job is being mom to two wonderful children, who both know what it feels like to watch the other children have the iced cupcakes. As a child she experienced allergies, asthma, and eczema.

The story of Blue was born at the breakfast table when her son asked whether animals have allergies too.

With that question a conversation started and … a monkey was born!
