Inquiring minds want to know? 

Friend + Sister + Coffee Lover + Serial Kit Kat Eater + Designer of all Things


I’ve known that I wanted to pursue design as a career since I was 6 years old! Shocking, I know, but 6-year-old me loved to sit with my grandmother, who would put together dresses that I could twirl around in like a princess. Like the fairy grandmother she is, she provided me with the tools that I still use today, showing me how to cut fabric, measure lengths, and, ultimately, create something tangible from the beautiful picture in my mind.


I knew then that I wanted to do this: visualize, plan, and do whatever it takes to bring ideas to life. At 12, I was blessed with my first commissions including cartoon place cards for a Bat Mitzvah and invitations and centerpieces for a debutant ball. My design repertoire has developed right along with me, to event design for 400-people luxury weddings.


A bit more about me and my credentials: I studied fashion design at Moore College of Art & Design, and received professional certificates in interior design and event planning and consulting from Temple University. I took a slight detour into human resources before taking on design full-time. In that career, I learned how to interact with those of different backgrounds and communication styles to me. Passionate about watching people grow, I greatly enjoyed watching personnel flourish in their careers. Today, I experience a similar joy in watching my clients grow from one significant life event to the next.
