About Kelly


I earned a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from the University of Florida with a major focus in Business Management and a minor focus in Costume Design. While studying Costume Design, I learned so much about time period research, sketching, patterning, cutting, sewing, dyeing, and stage makeup and hair. I assisted in costume production for Pride and Prejudice, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, and West Side Story and worked backstage as a dresser during West Side Story.


I've lived in Florida my whole life and I currently live in Tampa with my husband Chris and our orange tabby cat Leopold.



I love animals! I will totally cross the street just to pet a cute dog I see coming towards me and I will sleep in the most uncomfortable position just so I don't bump Audrey. We always had adopted and rescued pets growing up and I think that their unconditional love really makes a house a home.


I love sports. I'm a huge Tampa Bay Lightning fan and a loyal Gator alumna. I played soccer from elementary to high school and dabbled in volleyball in high school.


I love all things fashion. I will watch a Sex and the City, Gossip Girl, or Project Runway marathon no matter how many times I've seen every episode because the styling makes me happy. I love that the right piece of clothing and the right accessories can make people shine a little brighter from the inside.
I love health and fitness. I workout as much as I can because it genuinely makes me happy. Aside from running, I love to workout with Karena and Katrina of Tone It Up, Jillian Michaels, Kelsey Wells, yogi Ashley Galvin, and Mary Helen Bowers of Ballet Beautiful. I'm at Whole Foods a lot. I love conquering a challenge. I got teary eyed when I crossed the finish line at my first half marathon because I was completely overwhelmed.



I'm all about details. I think the little things are usually the most important. 


I have a ridiculous collection of mugs. There's one for every mood and every holiday! I think it's a genetic thing because my mom is exactly the same way and frequently adds to my collection.

I love a good motivational quote. I can always use some words of encouragement. 


I was a bridal seamstress for five years. I designed and made my own wedding dress, clutch, and headband for our wedding.



I have a serious love for bags. I could live in the handbag department at Nordstrom.

Pink is my power color. 


Blair Waldorf is my spirit animal.


Do not share popcorn with me - I will eat the entire bowl.


I've seen pretty much every episode of Gilmore Girls and Castle about a hundred times. We're total Netflix junkies - I highly recommend Stranger Things, Jessica Jones, The Punisher, and Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.

I love to travel. New York City makes me feel like I can do anything and Paris makes my soul happy!
