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 black and white cat Audrey.
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'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.
