I love to travel and soak up new cultures. I’ve been fortunate to have experienced the culture of so many countries and carry that experience with me. Travel has broadened my perspective in so many ways.

There is beauty everywhere. I am inspired by fashion and style from 90's classics to modern day couture. I find inspiration from the simplest details from a piece of lace to the intricate details from a gown or a pair of heels.

I work long hours during the week and weekends so some down town time does me a lot of good. I learned self care is important always. These days help me come back to work inspired.

I am so blessed to be surrounded by my family that love and support me every single day. I also feel so lucky to work with so many families and watch as they unite as one. It's such a trill to see families together celebrating.
