“My dad is a man’s man so I grew up fishing, boating, riding 4 wheelers, on construction sites, etc. I love adventure! I still enjoy all of these adventures today!!!!

“For my more laid-back looks, I mix eclectic elements from a variety of stores. I love Zara! My life is a strong balance of ease and peace coupled with luxury and fast-paced business transactions; my style mimics that marriage. I love the highly designed works of art coming out of Proenza Schouler and The Row but I also require my quick trips to Zara. I’m also very aware of the talent budding in our backyard: Alexis and Betsy Moss are two of my home-grown favorites.”

The point being to unite. I’ve always been extremely driven.”

“It’s my favorite thing to do! After meeting me in person so many people tell me, “I never expected you to be so funny. You appear so serious.” I definitely have a very serious business side to me but at my core, I’m a little girl that loves the adventure that is life! I take my business seriously but not myself, that’s the difference. :+]”
