I’m a creative expert, visual mastermind, lover of helping purposeful ideas come to life, dog obsessed, frequent wanderluster, vineyard goer, and total besties with my teen girls.
I was born with an entrepreneurial spirit. I've been creatively wandering as long as I can remember. After my college years, my career began as an art educator, graphic designer, and photographer. During early motherhood, I completed my MFA in sustainable fashion & textile design from The Academy of Art University in San Francisco.
I worked as a freelance designer for over a decade developing numerous apparel collections in the sport industry. One specifically designed for and recognized by Julia Mancuso olympic ski racer through my internship at Spyder in Boulder Colorado, Over the last decade, my work and passion for fashion and design led me to building a technology platform to help drive sustainability for the apparel industry. Basically, I set out to create a game-changing platform for people and our planet.
BUT...life through me a HUGE curveball. I was completely taken down by Covid Pneumonia & (ARDS) respiratory failure. I was hospitalized for over a month and nearly lost my life and I my chapter of running a startup soon came to an end. I've been in extensive recovery over the past 15 months, which has given me the time re-evaluate my next chapter. My mission is to take all my creative & entrepreneurial knowledge and help women turn passion into power. As I learned life is truly short...so why not LIVE YOUR BEST LIFE by earning your happiness!

mountains & oceans, green drinks & coffee, health & beauty, sustainable fashion, wine & tequila, dog walks, chasing sunsets, everything art, dabbling in a multitude of creative mediums, creatively wandering, my two teenage daughters & lab, podcasts and putting more goodness in the world through creativity!
As young child, there was always some kind of medium in my hand.. When my mother gave me a book, I put it down and grabbed a creative tool that allowed me to share my creative vision. From painting, drawing, jewelry design, illustration, graphic design, photography, fashion & textile/surface design, I am always growing as a creative.
From childhood to my high school years, I always saw the world through the beauty of art. My high school days were spent in the art department. I dabbled in sculpture, painting, photography, & jewelry design. I had a dream of owning a loft in downtown Chicago and attending The Art Institute. But life took a different course. I attended college in a small mountain town in Colorado where I basically lived in the pottery studio. I graduated with a BA in Fine Arts & Education. I taught K-12 art for a decade while I interned at a creative agency. It was there where I discovered my passion for photography & graphic design.
After working for many newspapers, agencies, and freelancing, I obtained my MFA in Fashion Design from The Academy of Art University in San Francisco. This led me to my interest in creating knits, textile & surface prints.
I've traveled the world which has opened my eyes to a multitude of culture and art. I believe that each day should be lived creatively adventurous. My world is always filled with color, pattern, and imagery that surrounds & inspires my work.
I've spent decades working as a creative in many different realms. My vision is to bring more beauty in the world through my creative visual work!
