MARKETING MANAGER 

My passion for marketing has always been a balance between creativity and organization. I thrive on helping clients find their perfect brand narrative. By telling your story, we weave our own, into a great, live, mobile canvas – a perfect mix of visual and verbal that will guarantee to shake things up!

Growing up one of seven kids, we didn't have a lot extra to spend on “frivolous” things like fashion (hair flip) as my dad would say. As a result, at a young age, I quickly became obsessed with brands and labels. I spent almost all my time flipping through Vogue and Vanity Fair, sketching clothes I wanted and in constant pursuit of the next big trend.

Those golden years of magazine hoarding led me to pursue a B.A in Graphic Design & Marketing from Limestone College in South Carolina, where I also accepted a lacrosse scholarship to play. 

By graduating early, I sustained my NCAA eligibility and Philadelphia University offered me an additional athletic scholarship to play and earn a masters degree. Lacing up my cleats for one last season as a Ram, I moved to Manayunk in 2016 and graduated with my M.S in Global Fashion Enterprise. I haven’t left Philly since! 

Prior to joining the Philly Home Girls, I spent time researching global fashion ecosystems all over China: Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen, and Hong Kong. I started my professional work experience as a graphic designer for the Gaffney Visitor's Center in Gaffney, South Carolina ( you know.. house of cards), worked as a freelance fashion designer & illustrator, served as Harriton High School's JV lacrosse coach, and worked as a Publicist for a Production Company. 

I am a proud dog mom of a  5-year old jack Russell- chihuahua, Grizzly, who yes -- has his own Instagram and is known to strike a pose. When I’m not in the office, you can find me getting my yoga on, bleeding green at Lincoln Financial, working on my upcoming swimwear line, or fashion styling at QVC
