About Me

Hi there!  I’m not very good at being adventurous, in fact it terrifies me. But everyday is a new opportunity to try new things and be brave and take on a new adventure.

Since marrying my college sweetheart, Travis, in 2007; I finished my Bachelor of Science in Interior Design, supported my husband and I as he pursued a Masters degree from Truett Seminary at Baylor University, and additional training as he worked toward becoming a hospice chaplain. My careers have varied a lot before becoming a Fashion Stylist with Stitch Fix.

One of the reasons I wanted to become a Stylist is because I know how much our clothes can empower us. It’s not that they are magical or anything but we become confident when we feel good. Like we can do anything asked of us. I want to help women feel confident and do the AMAZING things I know they can do.

Travel: is part of our adventure, we have been to the Galapagos, Israel, Greece, and most recently the UK, Ireland, and Paris, France. Through travel we have seen, done and met so many amazing people, I could never put a price tag on our travels.

Family Members: we have a cattle dog mix named Asher, who is one of the greatest things that has happened in my life. And 2 fluffy rescue kitties, Shade (the black one) and Huey (the striped tabby), all adopted within 6 months and eased us through some hard time in our family.

Fashion: is always an adventure! Each season a new opportunity & each day a creative opportunity to show off your personality with what you choose to wear. And knowing that your wardrobe can empower those #whomademyclothes is a strong reason why I blog, focusing on brands & products that uplift & empower through dignified work.

For a while I was doing a semi-weekly series on current trends with Kayla from The Accidental Nomad Life called Wear it Wednesday you can still read all our posts!

Faith: is an important part of my life and while I believe that Jesus is the source of my peace & salvation, I also believe everyone’s path is different & everyone is worthy of love & dignity afforded to all human beings created by God.

Facts:

My dog is the best ever. Seriously have you ever seen him? Also he’s the most devoted creature I’ve ever known.

I’m not wearing makeup 90% of the time but I always wear makeup to church, when getting coffee & for picture taking.

Married to my guy since 2007, and it’s been an amazing adventure!

We go to a Brethren Church now but have attended UCC, Baptist, and Mennonite churches in the past.

There is always music on when Travis is home, so sometimes I work in complete silence. Other times, I’m singing Hamilton at the top of my lungs. You’re welcome neighbors. You’re welcome.

I went to Stephen F Austin SU as an Art Major and switched to Interior Design after my freshman year and now work in the fashion industry. I’ve decided my passion for art & function has culminated to this.

I believe in adopting before buying of pets. Too many die in shelters every day.
