Some of my earliest memories are shopping with my mom, holding the clothes as she perfectly crafted looks for her clients. My Mom was a personal shopper in Dallas before most people knew the job even really existed. I loved my days spent shadowing her as she helped women bring out their true confidence. I lost her to breast cancer when I was only 15 but her styling wisdom and life-is-good mantra continue to influence who I am today.
I always knew I wanted to go into fashion and learned how to sew from my Grandmother. When I was too young to get in to shows to see my older brother's band perform, I started sewing pants and outfits for him to wear on stage instead. My love for being creative with clothes was born. I went to college at The University of Texas in Austin and earned a degree in fashion design with a minor in business. While in school, I spent my days crafting the visuals at local retail stores, working backstage at fashion shows and attending fashion weeks in New York and Los Angeles to intern for designers and gain knowledge of the fashion world as a whole.
After graduation, I moved to New York City where I worked for multiple fashion houses as I continued to find my own unique path. I had a feeling I would always return to personal shopping and styling so after a magical stint in the city, I returned to Austin to pursue a freelance career in fashion. I have been styling for photoshoots and working with brands and individuals for over 5 years.
