My Personal Joys!

I live with my 4 partners in crime: Mac, who is my number One partner; my 18 year old cat, Zora; our pittie, Serenity; and Mac’s turtle, Arnold. I enjoy getting outside in these beautiful mountains (preferably when it's camping weather), connecting with new and old friends (up to and not excluding discussions about Reality TV), and DANCE PARTIES (usually rocking a pair of knee socks)!

I am a purple person. I value courage. I love laughing. I am so excited to cheer on my clients every day and it amazes me how many wonderful people started as clients, and I now cherish as friends. That may sound cheesy...but I’m pretty freakin’ cheesy!

My Professional Background

While I wasn’t always interested in fashion, my grandmother taught me to sew as a young girl. My parents were both photographers and I spent time in a dark room with them growing up. Although I don’t sew currently, understanding how clothing is created and moments are captured informs how I style everything from the small details to a full ensemble.

Connecting with people in a fun and an empathetic way remains the common thread through every position I’ve held throughout my career. I worked as an educator, advocate, promotor, event coordinator, and substance abuse counselor for people in recovery prior to entering the wedding industry. I planned, marketed, and executed large and small events beginning in college, and have continued to do so as either a volunteer or professional since then.

I discovered that my years in counseling, advocacy, and healthcare enabled me to be able to create a safe and fun environment very quickly for brides when working as a Bridal Stylist at a small independent bridal boutique beginning in 2014. In 2017, I decided to work completely independently from any brand or boutique, and to work only for my clients: that is when just bloom together was born.
