Despite the uncertainties accompanying a move to a new country, Eve envisioned opportunities awaiting. Settling in California, she embarked on her entrepreneurial journey by establishing her own venture. Operating from a modest garage-sized facility in El Monte, CA, Eve began producing individually packaged, microwavable wet wipes ("Oshibori"), for restaurants which she aptly named "Diamond Wipes".

Driven by determination, Eve's perseverance mirrored that of her business. over time, Diamond Wipes International flourished into the leading wet wipe manufacturer west of the Rockies.
