Austin and Ashley Ray
Career: Owners of Simplicity Tea Co.
Austin and Ashley Ray graduated from Oklahoma State in 2014 and 2015 . They love living in Stillwater and wanted to help create a culture that encouraged more young graduates and families to stay. As a result, they opened Simplicity and Co. Tea House in 2016 with the goal of creating a place of community and rest. They later started Basilwood Custom Homes in 2019. When they're not building and designing houses, they can be found sipping tea on the porch with their three boys, hosting events and tea tastings at S&Co, or taking care of the 27 chickens and 8 goats on their small farm.
