Growing up I worked for my mom's floral/event design company. This helped me to become a really hard worker (no calling in sick when Mom's your boss!). It also allowed me to gain tons of experience in making all sorts of things aesthetically pleasing.
I have an education in visual arts and commercial photography. Color, design, and details have always made me really happy, so styling has been a natural fit!
Also, I'm..... a Labradoodle mom, wife, urban farmer, boater, fisherwoman, hiker, sometime florist assistant, dog-friendly brewery lover, wine appreciator, sunset and S'mores aficionado, and world traveler. I think some hammock time is necessary for good health. I'm brave enough to sit in the front seat of the Splash Mountain log. I have a good sense of humor (you have to when married to a former stand-up comedian). I'll run a half marathon, but really just so I can wear a tutu and wings in public without it being too weird. Most importantly, I'm a happy, thankful person.
