How did you get your start styling and merchandising?

When I was in elementary school I started designing clothes. I had a bag full of designs. I’ve always like to beat to my own drum and add my own pizzazz to my outfits. I have always had an eye for detail and loved how fashion could really make a person blossom and feel beautiful!

What is one of your favorite Fort Wayne spots?

One of my favorite Fort Wayne spots is the Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo.  I love taking my nieces, or just going on a date with my husband!

Who is your style inspiration, either still with us or having passed on?

You know I can’t really say that I have one look that has inspired me. I love to people watch and go into stores and see what they have styled and then I create my own version of that.

Do you have a favorite destination?

That is a tough one! We went to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic for our honeymoon and it was so beautiful and holds a special place in my heart, but I think I still favor the Grand Cayman Islands. The experiences I had there snorkeling and playing with the stingrays was majestic!

What is one fashion item you are always drawn to?

Sadly, there just isn’t ONE thing. Literally bags, shoes, clothes, jewelry… you name it.  LOVE IT ALL!
