Who We Are

Jade Urash


Owner, pen and paper nerd

Jade and her husband, Rick, took over ownership of Chirps & Cheers in May 2020. Jade’s passion for pens, cards, planners, stationery, and pretty much all things paper is a perfect fit for this sweet little shop. Jade finds true joy in helping customers find that perfect agenda, gift, or greeting card – chatting favorite pens, or oohing and aahing over the latest wedding invitations we’ve dreamed up. And hearing customers laugh out loud when perusing the extensive card wall makes her day.

Cara joined the team at Chirps & Cheers in June of 2021. Cara’s passion for helping customers and making sure the shop is running at its smoothest has been truly wonderful.

Shop dog extraordinaire

McGee is our ~13 year old shop mutt rescue dog that’s stolen our hearts. She spends her days lazing in her bed at the shop. She may or may not move when you walk in but if you head her way she’ll likely roll over for a belly rub (her fave!) She’s here most days and loves meeting new friends.
